The TSS 482 temporary visa allows an employer to sponsor a foreign skilled worker to fill a position that an Australian cannot.
To be eligible you must:
Before applying for the TSS 482 visa it is important that you check if your occupation is on the lists of qualified occupations in Australia. Also, you should make sure that you meet all the eligibility requirements.
Then, start organising certain documentation and submitting the application, such as identity documents, character, skills, work experience, health and English language skills.
Find an employer who is willing to sponsor you for a job in Australia. Employers can complete the employer sponsorship application online through the Department of Home Affairs (DHA).
Make sure the employer’s request for sponsorship is from a legal, active, and operational company that complies with established labour practices.
The next step will be to obtain a nomination from an employer. Once you find an employer, you will have to get nominated for the 482 visa. Here you will see all the details of the position you are going to fill and your salary.
You can apply for the visa at the same time that your employer submits the applications for it to sponsor and nominate you.
You, as a visa applicant, must demonstrate that you meet the skills required for your occupation, as well as the health and character requirements.
Once the employer nomination application is submitted, you will be able to apply for the 457 visa online through DHA.
