482 Visa Holder is eligible for 186 visa despite in the short term stream

It is expected that by the end of 2023, the Temporary Residence Transition (TRT) stream of the Employer Nomination Scheme Subclass 186 visa will be amended as follows:

1. All Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Subclass 482 visa holders will be eligible for ENS visas sponsored by their employers; 2. Applicants will need to continue to work in the occupation nominated for their TSS visa(s); 3. Sponsored visa holders will be eligible for ENS TRT after two years (down from three years) of sponsorship on a TSS by their employer; 4. Applicants will need to meet all other nomination and visa requirements for the TRT stream of the Employer Nomination Scheme visa; 5. The limit on Short Term stream TSS visa applications that can be made onshore has also been removed in the interim.

It is a clear path for all sponsored visa holders to be eligible for permanent visa and it is a good move for the Australian Government to recognise and reward the hardworking temporary visa holders.
