frequently asked questions

Who can be a Sponsoring Business for a TSS (482) Visa?

The Sponsor must prove that they are an eligible, legally established and genuine business in Australia. Ultimately, they need to provide evidence that they are a real company.

What are the stages for that lead to a TSS (482) Visa?

There are 3 stages. In the first stage, the business needs to become a Standard Business Sponsor (SBS). In the second stage, the business nominated a migrant for a particular eligible position within the business. In the third stage, the migrant applies for the visa.

Do I need to prove that I have two years experience to be eligible for a TSS (482) Visa.

Yes, you must. You need to provide evidence that you have at least two years of full time (or equivalent) experience in the nominated occupation. Some exemptions apply.

Would I be eligible for Permanent Residency after working 3 years full time for a TSS (482) Visa?

It depends. There are two stages in the ENS (186) Visa process, as your Sponsor will need to nominate you. Furthermore, you may only be eligible if your occupation was on the Medium to Long Term Occupations List (MLTSSL).

Can I change Sponsors halfway through my TSS (482) Visa?

Yes, you can. However, the new potential employer must successfully nominate you for the same position within the business. You are not allowed to work for anyone other than a Sponsor who have nominated you and it has been approved by the DHA.

What are the most common reasons for a Partner Visa refusal?

If insufficient evidence was provided to the DHA, didn’t respond to further requests from the DHA, if the Sponsor didn’t meet the eligibility criteria, the DHA wasn’t satisfied that the Position is genuinely required within the business, etc.
