Temporary Skill Shortage visa - TSS visa (sc 482)

The  Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa, sc 482, has replaced in March 2018 the 457 visa.

Under the TSS visa (sc 482) scheme, employers that are approved as a business sponsor will be able to sponsor overseas workers for 2 (Short-Term stream) or 4 years (Medium-Term stream), depending on whether the nominated occupation is included in the Short-Term Skilled Occupations List (STSOL) or the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).

Employees with a 4-year TSS visa may be eligible for a permanent employer sponsored visa after three years. 2-year TSS visa holders may renew their visa once for a further two years.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has also announced the following application charges for the new TSS visa:

  • 2-year visa: A$1,150
  • 4-year visa: A$2,400

Payments to the new Skilling Australians Fund will also be required from the sponsoring business.

There are several requirements visa applicants need to meet for a successful application for the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa. These include having at least 2 years of relevant work experience as well as character and English language requirements.

Employers will also need to pay Australian market salary rates to employees sponsored on a TSS visa. Moreover, Labour Market Testing will become mandatory, unless an international obligation applies.

Finally, your employer needs to become an approved Business Sponsor to nominate you.
