About Subclass 482
The subclass 482 visa also known as the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa allows Australian companies to sponsor and recruit overseas skilled workers to fill in positions with labor shortages. This visa grants the holder to a 2 year stay in Australia
What Are My Options?
There are 3 streams available for this visa.
- Short-Term Stream
This is for employers to outsource highly skilled overseas workers for occupations listed under the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). This is applicable for a maximum of 2 years each time or up to 4 years if an international trade obligation applies.
2. Medium Term Stream
This is for employers to outsource highly skilled overseas workers for occupations listed under the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or the Regional Occupations List (ROL) for up to 4 years (each time) with eligibility to apply for permanent residence after 3 years.

Step 1: Book Your Consultation
The first essential step in your migration process is to book a consultation. This is the stage where we identify the best and most suitable pathway for your circumstances.
Step 2: Personalized Migration Action Plan (MAP)
After attending a consultation with us, we will provide you with a personalized MAP. This includes a checklist where we tell you how to prepare relevant documents and samples if necessary.
Step 3: Collection, Review, and Drafting
An application is not just about the submission of documents – it also includes the process of reviewing the documents to make sure that they are up to standard. What we mean by this is to ensure that every piece of documentation that we submit has been carefully reviewed by our migration specialists based on the standard of the Department of Immigration.
Step 4: Lodgment and Submission
Here at Think Visa, we prepare what we like to call, Decision Ready Applications. This means that applications prepared by us are not only of high standard but also organized in a manner that is easy for the case officer to decide on and therefore significantly reducing processing time for you.
