I have worked with several migration agencies in Australia but nothing comes close to Gold Migration. The most recent application is my Partner visa which is quite a complex one due to a character requirement issue I had back in the UK a few years ago. They accepted me as a client when everyone said no to me. To the team at Gold Migration, I cant thank you enough for what you did for me. You changed my life and I hope you can help more people like me.read more

Gold Migration is very impressive. I was quoted a higher fee than others but I went with them in the confidence to deliver which was instilled in me. I have had 3 failed attempts at getting a visitor's visa for my wife. Not only did Gold deliver, but did so when they said they would. Big thanks to the team here. My wife has arrived the country, and thanks for Gold. Money well spent.read more

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.
