482/TSS Nomination and Visa Applications

For Low Visa-eligibility Qualifiers – The subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Visa is a tightened version of the now obsolete subclass 457 Visa (the 457 Visa ceased accepting new applicants in March 2018). This temporary resident visa, the 482 TSS Visa, allows skilled workers to be sponsored by their employer. This Visa has a Short-term stream (SOL) and a Medium-term stream (MLTSSL). For those who obtain and hold an occupation, as referred to in the Medium/Long-Term List, the 482 TSS Visa can lead to being eligibility for a Permanent Residency Visa.

“I am grateful to Evan for all the help and support he gave me especially during these recent difficult times. Evan gave me helpful professional advice which enabled me to then make the correct choices. Also, his conversations with my employer about me was helpful with my visa being approved on time.”

The TSS process has three stages. Stage 1 is Standard Business Sponsorship, looking into the details of the business such as turnover, staffing, and ownership. Stage 2 is the Nomination, a specific focus into the role itself in the business. This has many important aspects such as ensuring the nominee is being paid correctly (Salary Report), that the sponsorship isn’t taking an opportunity away from a local (Labour Market Testing), how the role fits into the business and why it is needed (Genuine Position), and other important aspects. These all require approval before Stage 3 (Visa Application). The importance of having the nomination assisted by a Registered Migration Agent to articulate the application clearly and favourably is worth every cent.

Subclass 482 Stages:

  • Standard Business Sponsor
  • Nomination
  • Visa Application

SAF 482 Visa:

The 482 visa requires mandatory payment by the employer sponsor to the Skilling Australians Fund (SAF), the SAF levy replacing the Training Benchmark requirement on 12th August 2018.

The SAF levy varies between TSS and ENS/RSMS and is calculated as follows:

Business Size TSS (482) Visa ENS (186) / 494 visas
Annual turnover less than $10 million AUD $1,200 annually per nominee $3,000 one-off
Annual turnover $10 million AUD or more $1,800 annually per nominee $5,000 one-off
