Employer Nomination Scheme Visa

    The 482 visa (Temporary Skill Shortage visa) is a temporary work visa for skilled workers in Australia. It allows Australian employers to sponsor foreign workers to fill skills shortages in their workforce on a temporary basis. The 482 visa has two streams: the Short-term stream and the Medium-term stream.

    The Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa enables employers to address labour shortages by hiring skilled workers where they cannot find an appropriately skilled Australian. While guaranteeing that Australian workers are given preference, it permits the recruitment of foreign workers to meet temporary skill shortages. Holders of TSS visas are permitted to work in Australia in the profession of their choice and may have a path to permanent residency.
