Subclass 482 Visa Requirements for Temporary Skill Shortage work Visa.
Subclass 482 TSS visa is a temporary work visa that allows a visa holder to work temporarily in Australia.
There is no age limit for this visa.
If you are applying in Australia you must be the holder of either a substantive visa; or a Bridging visa A, Bridging visa B or Bridging visa C.
If you are in Australia at the time of visa decision, you must have substantially complied with any conditions that apply or were applied to your last substantive visa or bridging visa you held.
Australian Business Sponsor: You must be employed in your nominated occupation in the nominating business or an associated entity of the nominating business.
Overseas Business Sponsor: You must be employed in your nominated occupation in the nominating business; and not an associated entity of the nominating business.
You might be exempt from this criterion if you have a certain occupation.
If you are the primary applicant for 482 visa, you must demonstrate that you have the qualifications, skills and experience necessary to perform the nominated occupation. Some applicants will need to undertake skills assessment as a proof of this.
If it is not mandatory for you to provide skills assessment, then you may still be required to provide other evidence to demonstrate that you meet this requirement.
Medical Practitioners: If your nominated occupation is a medical practitioner, then you must have your qualifications recognised by the relevant authority in Australia for the registration of medical practitioners as entitling you to practice as a medical practitioner.
You are exempt from needing to prove English language proficiency if one of the following apply to you.
You are a passport holder of one of these countries:
You have completed at least 5 years of full-time study in at least a secondary level institution and where most classes were in English. You will need to provide the following information:

Your nominated occupation requires you:
If you can not claim English language exemption, then you will need to prove your English language proficiency when you apply for the visa subclass 482 in the Short Term stream. You must score one of the below mentioned score in a single attempt at the test, must have completed the test within 3 years before the date of submitting a valid 482 visa application.

You must meet English language requirement as mentioned in your labour agreement.
You must be, or have applied to become a Standard Business Sponsor.
You must be nominated by the employer, and the occupation for which you get nominated must be on the Short Term Skilled Occupation list. Some occupations have caveats that may apply to them, making them not available for nomination. This means that some nominations can not be approved even if they are on the Short Term Skilled Occupation List.
You must be unable to find an Australian citizen or permanent resident with the skills and experience to fill the nominated position. This will require from the employer to do Labour Market Testing to show the Home Affairs that you can not find an Australian worker to do the work.
If you as nominee will be paid an annual salary of less than A$250,000, the employer must determine and show Department of Home Affairs that you will pay the nominee at least the annual market salary rate (AMSR) for the nominated position.
The position you are being nominated to must be genuine. This means that the position must exist and be what it claims to be. You may need to show one or more of the following:
Australian Business Sponsor: If the nominated occupation does not fall within one of the exemptions, then your nominating business must engage you under a written contract of employment to work only for your nominating business, or for an associated entity of the nominating business.
Overseas Business Sponsor: If the nominated occupation does not fall within one of the exemptions, then your nominating business must engage you under a written contract of employment to work only for your nominating business. You will not be able to work for an associated entity of your nominating business in Australia.
On-hire arrangements: Employers who propose to supply the services of TSS visa holders to unrelated businesses can not do so under Standard Business Sponsorship.
You must have at least 2 years relevant work experience in the nominated occupation or a related field. This work experience must be completed while working in the nominated occupation or performing tasks at the same skill level in a related field. Work experience gained in a related field would involve tasks which are same or closely related to those of the nominated position you intend to work as outlined in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO).
Generally, you should have gained your experience on a full time basis within the last 5 years. The period does not need to be continuous. We might consider equivalent part-time work. We do not consider casual work.
