What is Short-Term Skilled Occupation List in Australia?

Skilled individuals can temporarily enter Australia for highly specialised, short-term work under the Subclass 400 Visa within Short-Term Skilled Occupation List. Short-term visas are typically those that last less than three months, however in certain cases, they can be issued for up to six months.

What is a Short Skilled Visa in Australia?

The Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) allows applications for up to four years, with eligibility for permanent residency after three years. Applicants with occupations on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) are eligible for visas of up to two years (renewable once, for a further two years).

Permanent Residency Pathway for Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) Occupations

The Australian Government has unveiled a new route to permanent residency for those with jobs on the Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). The subsequent qualifying requirements are applicable:

  • Must hold a Temporary Skill Shortage (sublass 482) visa
  • Must have been in Australia for at least 12 months from 1 February 2020 to 14 Dcember 2021
  • Must be employed and sponsored by a lawful business in Australia
  • Occupation must be on the STSOL
  • Must have worked in your nominated occupation, on a subclass 482 visa for at least 3 out of 4 years with the sponsoring employer prior to submitting the 186 nomination application

This pathway to permanent residency for Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) occupations commences from 1 July 2022. There are stringent prerequisites for this pathway’s eligibility. Important information about visa categories and time requirements may be found here.

Must Work for Sponsor Employer While Holding 482 Visa

Candidates with a TSS 482 visa who have worked for their sponsor company for at least three years are eligible to pursue the road to permanent residence for Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) jobs. The applicant’s employment for the sponsor employer during a different visa type—such as a graduate visa (485), working vacation (subclass 417/462), or working holiday—does not count towards the required three years of employment. Therefore, the three-year eligibility requirement will not be satisfied by any time spent working for the sponsor firm while not in possession of a TSS 482 visa.

Must Work for Sponsor Employer for a Minimum of 3 Years

You must work for your sponsor company for at least three years in order to be eligible for the road to PR for Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) vocations. For two years, only Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) vocations are eligible for the TSS 482 visa. If you would want to stay in Australia longer and your current visa is about to expire, you may apply for a new one using this sort of visa. This implies that certain holders of TSS 482 visas could only be qualified for the 186 track to permanent residence after obtaining their second 482 visa. This is because, in order to be eligible, you had to have worked for your sponsoring company for three years or more before submitting your 186-nomination application.
