Australian Work Visas

There are five Australian work visas that allow you to work in Australia

TSS 482 work visa

Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) 186 Permanent Visa

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Subclass 187 Visa

Temporary/Short Stay Specialist Work 400 Visa

The TSS Temporary Skill Shortage 482 Work Visa

Some highlights of the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) 482 visa are:

It has two streams:

Short-Term Stream (up to 2 years)

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) website states that “The Short-Term stream is designed for Australian businesses to fill skill gaps for up to two years with skilled overseas workers where an Australian worker is not available.”

Regarding the Short-Term stream, the DIPB site adds that “Unlike the current subclass 457 visa, this stream will allow onshore renewals only once, and involve a genuine temporary entrant assessment to prevent de facto residence.”

Medium-Term Stream (up to 4 years)

“The Medium-Term stream is designed for Australian businesses to fill critical skill gaps for up to four years

with highly skilled overseas workers, where an Australian worker is not available.” (DIPB)

Please note this difference between the TSS and 457 visas: “The Medium-Term stream will have a permanent residence option after three years, subject to meeting all other eligibility criteria, rather than after two years from the subclass 457 visa.” (DIPB)

Both the Short-Term and the Medium-Term streams have eligibility requirements that include:

  • Occupation lists
  • Onshore renewals
  • A minimum of 2 years relevant work experience
  • Criminal background checks

The Employer Nomination Scheme allows Australian employers to sponsor employees who are foreign nationals for a permanent visa to work in Australia. This visa is known as a 186 visa.

The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) 186 Permanent Visa

The Employer Nomination Scheme allows Australian employers to sponsor employees who are foreign nationals for a permanent visa to work in Australia. This visa is known as a 186 visa.

The nomination process is similar to the 457 visa, whereby the employer is required to meet training benchmark requirements and the nominated salary must be within market rates and no less than the Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT) level as specified by the Department of Immigration and is indexed annually on 1 July.

In addition, the position on offer must be full time, ongoing and available for at least a three year period.

The visa applicant’s requirements will vary, depending on the stream and the conditions of employment.

The 2 most common streams under this Visa subclass:

The Temporary Residence Transition Steam is a streamlined pathway that allows applicants of a 457 visa who have worked for their current employer for 2 years to obtain a permanent visa.

The Direct Entry Stream, which requires applicants to obtain a Skills Assessment and demonstrate 3 years work experience and meet English language requirements (unless exempt).

The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme allows Australian employers in regional Australia to employ skilled people in positions unable to be filled from the local labour market.

Many Foreign Chefs Work in Australia, including in Regional Australia on the 187 Visa

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Subclass 187 Visa

The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme allows Australian employers in regional Australia to employ skilled people in positions unable to be filled from the local labour market.

The most relevant variances with 187 visa is that it does not require the employer to meet the training benchmark requirements and there is no set TSMIT for the salary offer to the applicant.

The nominated position together with the proposed terms and conditions of employment, do however, need to be certified by the Regional Certifying Board which is appointed to the specified location of employment.

In addition, the position on offer must be full time, ongoing and available for at least a two year period.

*All occupations nominated under the Employer Sponsored Visas may be on the Consolidated Skills Occupation List or the Skilled Occupation List

Temporary/Short Stay Specialist Work 400 Visa

The Temporary Short Stay 400 visa allows employers to hire foreign nationals to work short term in Australia to perform specialized work. The 400 visa is generally granted for 3 months and in some instances for 6 months. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply for the 400 visa, but they must do so offshore, that is, overseas, not in Australia. The specific work related to the application does not need to be on any occupation list and the application is not subject to labour market testing or market salary rates.

After the successful 400 visa applicant is working for an Australian company, he or she may be able to apply for a different visa, for example, the subclass 457 visa.

If you have been invited to work on a specific task for an Australian employer, contact us to discuss the 400 visa as an option for you.

The 407 Training visa can last up to 24 months.
