From subclass 457 to subclass 482 – TSS Occupation list and changes

No further applications under the subclass 457 program can be lodged, with the new TSS visa online forms available for use since 18 Mar 2018.  However, transitional arrangements are in place. Additional regulatory amendments have, however been made to manage subclass 457 visa applications that are currently undergoing review at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

In recognition to the challenges that regional areas face in recruiting skilled workers, there are additional occupations available for certain visa programs to employers in regional areas resulting to the creation of the Regional Occupation List (ROL) IMMI18/004.
