Temporary Employer Sponsored Visas – STSOL occupation to PR Pathway
Minister Hawke’s announcement on 25 November 2021 that enhanced visa pathways to PR would be available to existing Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa holders in the short-term stream and legacy Temporary Work Skilled (subclass 457) visa holders who no longer meet the age requirement is currently being actioned. The legislation to enable this is currently being developed and is expected to be introduced ‘around the middle of this year‘.
The Department recognises the potential for the visas of eligible applicants to expire within this period and arrangements are being put in place for those affected applicants.
The new pathways will be for all occupations on the STSOL list and not restricted to specific sectors.
