FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The primary difference between Direct Entry and Temporary Residence Transition streams is in the main requirements.

To apply under the Direct Entry stream, applicants must meet specific occupational requirements, while applicants are required to hold specific work or Bridging visas to apply under the Temporary Residence Transition stream.

The occupational requirements do not apply to the Temporary Residence Transition stream and there is no requirement for applicants to already hold a specific visa to apply under the Direct Entry stream.

To apply under the Direct Entry Stream, applicants must meet specific occupational requirements, while applicants are required to work under a labour agreement to apply under the Labour Agreement instead. The occupational requirements do not apply to the Labour Agreement stream and there is no requirement for a Labour Agreement under the Direct Entry stream.

Both the Subclass 482 and 186 visas are employer-sponsored visas. The main difference between the two visas is that the Subclass 186 visa is a permanent visa while the Subclass 482 visa is a temporary visa. Subclass 482 visa holders who apply under either the Short-term or Medium-term stream are eligible to apply for permanent residence if they meet the requirements.
