The Temporary Skill Shortage Visa 482 allows an employer to sponsor a skilled worked to fill a position they cannot find in Australia.
The Temporary Skill Shortage or TSS Subclass 482 Visa is a temporary visa, allowing employers to sponsor an eligible skilled worker to fill a position for which the employer cannot find a suitably skilled Australian. This visa type is designed to make temporary entry arrangements for businesses facing skill shortage in the Australian labour market. The TSS 482 visa is one of the common work visas, offering renewal possibilities and a permanent residency pathway.
A business can sponsor a foreign employee for this visa only if it cannot find an Australian citizen or permanent resident to do the job. The 482 visa can be sponsored by a Standard Business Sponsor (SBS) or an Overseas Business Sponsor (OBS). The sponsored employee can be present in or outside Australia when applying (or hold a BVA, BVB, BVC).
The TSS visa Subclass 482 came into existence on the 18th March 2018 by replacing the 457 visa. The subclass 482 visa is made of three streams, including:

There are three steps involved in applying for the TSS 482 visa.
Step 1: A lawfully active employer must make a sponsorship application for the foreign employee they want to hire.
Step 2: The next step is the nomination application related to the vacant job position, salary offered, efforts put into hiring Australian workers, and the ‘genuineness’ of the position. The business hiring foreign employees must be eligible to sponsor from overseas.
Step 3: The last step requires a visa application by the nominated employee. The visa applicant must prove that they have the skills required to undertake the job being offered by the employer. The candidate must also meet all health and character requirements.
