Work Visa

Employer sponsored Visa

Work in Australia from 1 to 4 years with a Temporary Skills Shortage – sc 482 Visa

WWORKERS NEED EMPLOYER SPONSORSHIP to apply for this visa. The process requires 3 separate applications: Sponsorship; Nomination; and Visa Application. Together, the process can take about 3-6 months, depending on the quality of the application and the issues involved. Family members can come along to work and study on the same visa. The TSS 482 visa has 2 streams; 2 years and 4 years – depending on your job. Gomez Lawyers can help review both the eligibility of you and your sponsor for this sc 482 visa. Contact Us.
