MORE INFORMATION ABOUT TEMPORARY WORK VISAS

Let’s take a closer look at the Australian Temporary Work Visas:

THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS:

Temporary Work Visas allow a variety of activities in Australia and thus don’t have a general set of basic requirements. Instead, we'll list the main requirement of each visa:

  • Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) Visa: Applicants must have highly specialised skills, knowledge or experience not generally available in Australia.
  • Temporary Skill Shortage Visa: Applicants must be nominated to work in an occupation on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) or the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or be nominated to work in a specified occupation under the terms of a Labour Agreement.

HOW TO APPLY:

The Temporary Work Visas each have a unique application process. Please speak with our licensed advisor for advice.

Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) Visa holders cannot extend their visas however, if the work requires the visa holder to return to Australia at a later point in time, a further subclass 400 work visa can be applied for.
