About the 482 Visa in Australia: Temporary Skill Shortage Visa

Let us help you understand what documents and requirements are needed for your 482 Visa in Australia:

The 482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa is the ideal solution if you have a job offer in Australia but you are overseas, or you are here with a temporary visa that has work limitations, such as a Student Visa or a Working Holiday Visa.

The 482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa is temporary and it allows you to accept a job offer from an Australian employer and work for them. You get full-time work rights but you can only work for the sponsoring employer, in the approved nominated occupation, unless another employer takes over your sponsorship.

The visa is granted for up to 4 years but it can be extended for more time after that. We are happy to discuss your eligibility: we determine if your employer can become a sponsor and if you meet all the requirements for the visa. Our experienced Migration Agents can also prepare and lodge all applications for you.

When dealing with an honest, competent and experienced Registered Migration Agent from Bravo Migration you maximize your chances of a positive outcome in a faster manner, as we will prepare a decision-ready application and minimise delays.
