Who is this visa for?

The Temporary Graduate subclass 485 visa is for recent graduates who have obtained eligible qualifications through an Australian education provider, while on a valid student visa.

The Temporary Graduate subclass 485 visa allows successful applicants and their families to live, study and work in Australia temporarily after they have finished their studies.

Applicants are only allowed to hold one Temporary Graduate subclass 485 visa as a primary applicant.

The Temporary Graduate Subclass 485 visa has two streams:

Study Visa

Graduate Work stream:

For international students with an eligible qualification who graduate with skills and qualifications that relate to an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL). A visa in this stream is granted for 18 months from the date of grant.

Skilled Graduate Visa

Post-Study Work stream:

For international students who graduate with a higher education degree from an Australian education provider, regardless of their field of study. This stream is only available to students who applied for, and were granted, their first student visa to Australia on or after 5 November 2011, and can be granted for up to four years depending on the applicant's qualification.

All primary applicants for the Temporary Graduate visa subclass 485 must be in Australia when they apply for this visa and when the visa is granted.

Secondary applicants who apply for this visa after the main applicant has been granted the visa may be in or outside Australia when they apply.

What does a Temporary Graduate Subclass 485 visa allow me to do?

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER USING AUSTRALIAN EXPRESS MIGRATION SOLUTION

Using a good Migration Agent gives you peace of mind your application will be successful

While it is not the goal of the Department of Immigration to make applying for a visa complex it does have an obligation to ensure that visas are only granted to applicants who meet the criteria for the visa. Australian immigration laws and requirements change on a regular basis and the Department of Immigration’s interpretation of those laws changes even more frequently. So meeting the criteria for a visa can change from one day to the next.

Handling your own visa application involves considerable risk when you consider the financial cost and the implications for your work and residency rights if your application fails. One error, however small, can lead to a visa being refused.

Use Australian Express Migration Solution to ensure your application is handled professionally and your chances of success are maximized.

Anyone providing migration advice in Australia must be an OMARA registered migration agent (www.omara.com.au) and must comply with the OMARA Code of Conduct.

All Australian Express Migration Solution’s migration agents are OMARA registered and comply with this Code of Conduct.
