Australia has different visa streams for skilled people looking to live and work in Australia temporarily or permanently.

We provide advice on the most appropriate visa that allows you and your dependents to live and work in Australia temporarily or permanently. We also represent you when dealing with Australia’s immigration department.

Employer Sponsored Visas

Temporary work visas

482 Visas

The Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) programme is driven by employer demand and requires employer sponsorship. Businesses can employ overseas workers for up to four years in occupations listed in two skilled occupation lists: the Short Term Skilled Occupation List and the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skilled List. The 482 visa is  valid for either 2 years or 4 years, depending on the occupation.

457 Visas

The TSS replaces the 457 visa. However, if you currently have a 457 visa, you may be able to transition to a visa that offers permanent residency. We can advise you on your options and guide you through the transitioning process.
