Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (subclass 482), referred to as TSS visa. The predecessor was the former Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457). The 482 visa allows applicants to work in Australian companies for 2-4 years. There are three types of 482 visas: short-term and medium-term and long-term labour agreements.
The main jobs are IT, engineering, electricians, mechanical maintenance workers, glass workers, door and window workers and welders, as well as farm employees, etc., and can be renewed.
Among them, the short-term visa is valid for 2 years as long as 4 years, and the nominated occupation needs to be on the short-term occupation list; the medium and long-term visa is valid for a maximum of 4 years, and the nominated occupation must be on the MLTSSL list or ROL list; the labour agreement stream visa is valid for the longest 4 years, depending on the length of the agreement.
Among them, the 482 medium and long-term visa is the visa that most applicants will choose at present. After meeting the 3-year work requirement, applicants with medium and long-term 482 visas can obtain permanent residency rights by applying for 186 employer sponsorship.
