Temporary Resident VISA

Just like a trial run before the big marathon, a Temporary Resident Visa offers you the opportunity to live, work, or study in Australia on a temporary basis. It's a popular choice for taxpayers from overseas who are heading to Australia to work, most commonly on a 457 visa.

  • Be under the age of 50.
  • Hold an eligible visa.
  • Have held a student visa in the last six months.
  • Hold a recent qualification from a CRICOS-registered course.
  • Please note, you can only apply for one visa stream at a time.

Australia offers several types of Temporary Visas, each catering to different needs and circumstances:

  1. Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (Subclass 482)
  2. Temporary Graduate Visa (Subclass 485)
  3. Electronic Travel Authority (Subclass 600)
