This visa, referred to as the TSS visa, enables employers to address labour shortages by bringing in genuinely skilled workers where they cannot source an appropriately skilled Australian. It facilitates targeted use of overseas workers to address temporary skill shortages, while ensuring that Australian workers get priority. TSS visa holders can work in Australia in their nominated occupation for their approved sponsor under one of three streams:
the Short-Term stream
the Medium-Term stream
the Labour Agreement stream.
You must have the skills to fill a position nominated by an approved business for an approved occupation.
Length of stay
One to four years – depending on your nominated occupation, the visa stream and your circumstances
