From March 2018, the Australian Government introduced a new work visa in replacement of the 457 visa – the Subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa.
TSS 482 visa is the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa which enables the Australian employer to bring the workers from overseas when they are not being able to fulfill the required vacancy through Australian skilled worker.
Basically, the aim of TSS 482 Visa is to fulfill the labor shortage in Australia. Visa subclass 482 allows you to work under three main streams:

The four-year period applies where an employer under an International Trade Obligation (ITO) is eligible to nominate you if:
Medium-Term Stream: If the employer desires to source and sponsor you as the overseas skilled worker, he/she can do so under the medium-term stream for a period of 4 years for the jobs listed on the MLTSSL (Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List) or Regional Occupation List (ROL).

The processing time for the Temporary Skill Shortage Subclass 482 Visa is based on the number of applications received for the 457 visas prior to the implementation of the TSS visa and the transitional arrangements undertaken for 457 nomination and visa holder. However, the department is trying for the reduced processing time by initiating streamlined processing arrangements for the new TSS visa framework.
