Visa Options

Temporary Skill
Shortage Visas

The Temporary Skill Shortage TSS Visa (Subclass 482) Visa allows skilled workers to live and work in Australia for an approved business for up to four years. This temporary visa allows applicants to include immediate family members to their visa. After being in Australia on a Temporary Skill Shortage (Subclass 482) Visa for a period of three years, workers and their families may be eligible to transition to Permanent Residency.

Permanent Employer Sponsored
Nominated Visas

Permanent employer sponsored visas, which include the Subclass 186 (ENS) and Subclass 187 (RSMS) Visas, allow overseas workers to live and work in Australia for a nominating employer. These permanent working visas may be applied for through the direct entry stream or via a transitional stream once an overseas worker has been employed by the same employer on a 457 or 482 Visa for two or three years, depending on the occupation.

Better Job Opportunities

Employer Sponsored Visas allow skilled overseas workers to live and work in Australia for their nominating Australian employer. Visa applicants must be qualified or have sufficient experience working in an occupation listed on the relevant Skilled Occupation List. Australian Skilled Migration is an international recruitment specialist. Our team of expert Registered Migration Agents can assist with any employer sponsored visa, in any eligible industry.
