Temporary Graduate Visas

Temporary Graduate Visas, your gateway to work in Australia

The Temporary Graduate 485 visa is a key linkage between the  Australian Student visa program and work in Australia.

Graduate Visa

For many students, gaining work experience in Australia is a critical step to security future prosperity and work in their preferred industry and occupation. The 485 visa provides former Australian Student visa holders the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in Australia.

The visa has two separate streams, each with different requirements:

The Graduate Work stream is available to international students who have completed relevant qualifications to enable them to fulfil the requirements for an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List, or SOL. The visa is granted for up to 18 months.

The Post-Study Work stream is available for international students who complete a qualification in a higher education field. The visa can be granted for between 2 and 4 years depending on the qualification obtained.

While the Temporary Graduate Subclass 485 Visa is critical for many students seeking to gain local work experience, the visa has very specific requirements which must be met at the time of application. Failure to do so can result in visa refusal with no chance of success through appeal. We have assisted many students to apply successfully for the Temporary Graduate visa.
