For the Temporary Skill Shortage Subclass 482 visa you are sponsored to work in a nominated occupation under the following three streams:

The four-year period applies where an employer under an International Trade Obligation (ITO) is eligible to nominate you if:

  • The cost of this visa is AUD1150
  • The visa under this stream can be renewed only once while you are in Australia

Labour Agreement Stream: Where the employer enters into a labour agreement for the purpose of sponsoring you as an overseas skilled worker, he/she may do so under this stream.

Processing Time for Temporary Skill Shortage Subclass 482 Visa

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.
