The Subclass 482 visa allows a skilled worker to work in their nominated occupation for an approved sponsor (employer) in Australia for up to four years.
Before applying for this visa, the worker must have an employer who is a standard business sponsor and has applied for nomination with the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) for the worker.
An employer who is already registered as a standard business sponsor can apply for the worker's nomination, and once approved, the worker has six months to apply for the visa.
Employers who are not eligible sponsors must first apply to become one and then apply for worker's nomination. Both sponsorship and nomination applications can be made at the same time.
Employers have several obligations to fulfill to become a business sponsor and nominate an employee, such as meeting the requirements set by the Department of Immigration regarding business tenure, critical position needs, training benchmarks, checking that no Australian Permanent Residents or citizensare available for the position, and offering a suitable salary to the nominated worker among others.
The Subclass 482 visa offers three options to choose from:
All three streams have different requirements, applicants should ensure that their occupation is present on the required skilled occupation list, and they must be nominated by an approved sponsor in order to apply for the visa.
To be eligible for a 494 visa, applicants must have sponsorship from an approved standard business sponsor, be nominated for a skilled occupation that has been approved by the Australian Government, possess the necessary skills to fill the nominated position, meet English language proficiency requirements, have any necessary registration or licensing, be limited to working only in the nominated occupation, meet health, character, and other skill-related requirements, have adequate health insurance or be covered by Medicare, and have the option to include their partner, dependent children, and other family members in the application.
To apply for sponsorship as an eligible standard business sponsor, the fee is AUD420. The fee for nomination application, also for the employer, is AUD330. The Temporary Skills Shortage visa (subclass 482 Short Term Stream) application fee is AUD1,330, and for the Medium-Term and Labour Agreement Stream, the fee is AUD2,770. The same fee applies to additional applicants over 18 years old, with additional costs for applicants under 18 years old, depending on the stream being applied for.

The Government of Australia launched a new Work Visa from March 2018 – the Subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa. This replaced the Subclass 457 Visa. The TSS Visa is a provisional Visa that permits its holder to reside in Australia. This is while working full-time in the nominated position for the sponsoring employer. The dependent family members can be included by the applicants in their TSS Visa application.
To be eligible for the Subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa, applicants must have sponsorship from an approved employer in Australia, possess adequate health insurance, hold the required qualifications and skills, meet English language proficiency standards, and comply with any other conditions and requirements as specified by the Australian government.
The Subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa is divided into two categories, which may provide the opportunity to apply for Permanent Residency with sponsorship through the Employer Nomination Scheme (186) or Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (187) by the employer.
The Home Affairs Department in Australia has established a processing order for TSS Visa applications, which includes applications submitted by accredited sponsors, applications for positions in regional Australia, applications under the Labour Agreement stream, and all other remaining applications. Processing times for TSS Visa applications vary depending on the stream under which the visa is filed, and whether the nominee currently holds a 482/457 Visa. The processing times for the Short Term Stream is 25% of applications: 44 days, 50% of applications: 83 days, 75% of applications: 12 months and 90% of applications: 15 months. The processing times for the Medium-term Stream is 25% of applications: 30 days, 50% of applications: 46 days, 75% of applications: 3 months, and 90% of applications: 9 months. The processing times for the Labour Agreement Stream is 25% of applications: 34 days, 50% of applications: 50 days, 75% of applications: 3 months and 90% of applications: 7 months.
