New changes for Visa 482 /457

 New changes for Visa 482 /457



Changes to the 186 visa options for TSS 482 visa holders in the short-term stream have been published on 18 Mar 2022. 


It should help quite a few applicants who have stayed in Australia during the pandemic.

Unlike Medium-Term TSS 482, which has its PR pathway to 186 visas, the short-term stream has been designed to have no direct path to permanent residency, reinforcing its “short” term. However, these changes acknowledge the contributions of TSS 482 visa holders to the Australian economy during the pandemic.

The new change allows access to the Temporary Residence Transition stream of the ENS 186 visa from 1st July 2022 for short-term stream TSS 482 visa holders who:

  • Spent a (cumulative) period of 12 months or more in Australia between 1 Feb 2020 and 14 Dec 2021
  • Employed by a suitable employer in Australia at the time of application, meaning hold a TSS 482 Visa at the time of application

These changes improve the situation for many TSS 482 visa holders in the short-term stream, who may have been working towards permanent residency under programs, or expecting to need to return home. We hope this will help Australia capture some skills shortages for the long term.
