Temporary Skills Shortage - TSS 482 Visa - Australia

09 Sep 2021

Short Term and Medium Term Streams

The purpose of the new TSS visa (supersedes the 457 visa) is to ensure that the TSS visa is more targeted, strengthen the integrity of Australia's temporary and permanent employer sponsored programs, more adept at meeting Australia's skills requirements, and enhance the quality and economic contribution of skilled migrants.

The Short term stream allows for work for up to 2 years and the Medium Term stream allows for overseas workers to fill medium-term critical skills in work for up to 4 years. In addition, there is a Labour Agreement stream, where the Australian company has a labour hire agreement with the Department of Home Affairs.

Short Term Stream

Renewal - The Short term stream can be renewed once onshore, in Australia.

Occupations - Your occupation must be listed on the Short Term Skilled Occupations List (STSOL).

English Language Ability - The new TSS requirement is an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 5.0, with a minimum of 4.5 in each test component. Under the previous 457 visa, there was an exemption from the English language test if the applicant's salary was over $96,400.

Genuine Entry - Requirement that you must be a genuine temporary entrant.

Medium Term Stream

Renewal - The Medium term stream can be renewed onshore, in Australia, and there is a pathway to permanent residence after 3 years.

Occupations - Your occupation must be listed on the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or the Regional Occupation List (ROL).

English Language Ability - The requirement is an International English Langauge Testing System (IELTS) minimum score of 5.0, in each test component.
