Permanent Pathway for TSS 482 Visa Holders

From 1 July 2022 there have been a variety of changes for the Subclass 482 holders on the Short-term occupation list. There are now Permanent Pathways for TSS 482 Visa Holders on a Short-Term 2 year-visa.

You are now able to apply for a third Subclass 482 visa onshore without departing Australia if you were in Australia as the holder of a Subclass 482 visa in the short-term stream for a minimum 12 months between 1 February 2020 and 14 December 2021 and you make a further application prior to 1 July 2023.

From 1 July 2022, employers will be able to nominate short-term Subclass 482 TSS visa holders for permanent residency under the Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS), temporary transition stream. As long as the 482 TSS visa holder:

  1. Was in Australia for a minimum 12 months between 1 February 2020 and 14 December 2021; and
  2. Meets the criteria for the ENS under the temporary transition stream, including any COVID concessions

The grandfathering period for those who held, or had applied for, a Subclass 457 visa as of 17 April 2017 has also been extended.
