Looking to Australia for more than a holiday?
Want to test the waters before committing to a permanent move or experience Australia as a local nurse?
Then you may want to explore a longer-term option, like the Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) visa, which covers visa sponsorship by an employer for overseas nurses wanting to work here.
Let's take a closer look at this visa and if it suits you.
Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (Subclass 482)
The Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa - or 482 - is designed to cover labour shortages in Australia, including registered nurses (yay!).
Key conditions and features of this visa include:
- It requires a sponsoring employer (that’s us!), with a valid job offer.
- Allows you to stay and work in Australia for up to four years.
- Bring your spouse and children with you.
- Your spouse has unlimited work rights while in Australia.
Sound good? We have sponsorship opportunities available based on current industry demands and experience, with nursing roles at any of our branch locations across Australia.
TSS visa vs. Working holiday visa
The main benefits of the TSS visa vs. the WHV (Subclass 417) include:
- The TSS visa lets you stay for longer than the WHV: up to four years vs 12 months.
- The TSS visa is family friendly, and they can join you here!
