TSS Visa (Temporary Skill Shortage)

The TSS Visa (Temporary Skill Shortage) Subclass 482 has replaced the Subclass 457 Temporary Work Visa. The TSS visa program can assist Australian businesses experiencing genuine skill shortages and cannot find Australian workers to fill their vacant positions.

TSS Visa holders can live and work in Australia in their nominated occupation under one of the below streams:

The TSS Visa streams

  • Short-Term Stream – up to two years
  • Medium-Term Stream – up to four years
  • Labour Agreement Stream

The Short-term Skilled Occupations List (STSOL) and the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) determine which stream an applicant is eligible to apply for.
