The TSS visa enables employers to address labor shortages by bringing in genuinely skilled workers where they cannot source an appropriately skilled Australian. Australian business investment immigration visa facilitates targeted use of overseas workers to address temporary skill shortages while ensuring that Australian workers get priority. You can learn more about Australian business investment immigration visa via Mygration.

TSS visa holders can work in Australia in their nominated occupation for their approved sponsor under one of three streams:

  • Short-Term stream of up to two years (unless international trade obligations apply). This stream is designed for Australian businesses to fill short-term skill gaps with foreign workers on a temporary basis, where a suitably skilled Australian worker cannot be sourced.
  • Medium-Term stream of up to four years. This stream allows employers to source and sponsors foreign workers to address shortages in a narrower range of occupations in medium and long-term need, where a suitably skilled Australian worker cannot be sourced.
  • Labour Agreement stream. This stream may be utilized in exceptional cases where standard visa programs are not available and there is a demonstrated need that cannot be met in the Australian labor market.

You must have the skills to fill a position nominated by an approved business for an approved occupation.

Due to the economic consequences of Covid-19 and its effect on the Australian economy, the Federal budget for the next financial year is aimed at driving economic growth and support for job creation during Australia’s post-recovery phase and has thus approved the 2020 – 2021 Migration Program to address Australia’s interests first.

Economic conditions in Australia, future skill needs, the population objectives of states and territories, community views, labor force forecasts, international research, net overseas migration, and economic and fiscal modeling are taken into consideration when planning the program.
