Third onshore 482 TSS Visa available for eligible visa holders – Deadline of 1 July 2023

Mar 23, 2023 | AUS | 0 comments

Initially, the Department required applicants seeking to apply for a further TSS visa in the short-term stream to be offshore. However, the new instrument will allow eligible 482 visa holders who have worked in Australia during the pandemic to apply for a third TSS visa without leaving Australia. 

To be eligible to apply for the third 482 visa, you must:

  1. Have been in Australia as the holder of a TSS visa in the short-term stream for periods that total at least 12 months between 1 February 2020 and 14 December 2021; and
  2. Make the further application before 1 July 2023 (unless the Minister specifies a later date).

This is a welcome change which will enable those eligible to apply for the third TSS visa to obtain this visa while remaining in Australia, facilitating an opportunity to apply for permanent residency to ensure the skills can be retained in Australia.Please contact if you require assistance with the 482-visa process.
