Temporary skills shortage (Subclass 482 TSS) Visas

We can help your business to gain approval to sponsor overseas employees, nominate a skilled position and lodge the visa application for the employee.

There are labour market testing requirements, market salary requirements, and the employee must have a certain level of English.

A labour agreement may be more appropriate for your business, if you are considering sponsoring a large number of employees.  For some occupations, a labour agreement is the only way to sponsor employees for a subclass 482 TSS visa.

Permanent (Employer Nomination) visas

We can help your business sponsor an employee for permanent residence. Your business must offer a full time position for at least 2 years. Again, there are market salary and English language requirements, and the applicant must be under 45 years of age, unless exemptions apply.

Your employee may be eligible for permanent residence if they have had their skills assessed by the relevant assessing body, or if they have been in Australia , working for your business in the nominated position for 3 years, on a Subclass 482 TSS visa.

The requirements differ for businesses operating in a designated regional area - please contact us for more information if your business is located in a regional area.
