More Opportunity for Graduate To Remain further in Australia
Prior to 1 Jul 2022, international student graduate must meet below requirements to be eligible for a grant of Temporary Graduate visa 485 - Graduate Work Stream:
Nominate an occupation on the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL);
Have a degree, diploma or trade qualification closely related to that occupation; and
Be assessed by a relevant assessing authority as having skills suitable for that occupation
As of 1 July 2022, the Australian government executed the temporary removal of the above requirements. According to the published information by the Department, this will be valid to all application lodged between 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023 and this period may be extended.
So what's this means for you? This means if you are lodging a Temporary Graduate visa 485 - Graduate Work stream, you no longer need to do a provisional skill asssessment or nominate an occupation in your application, however you will still need to satisfy the other criteria.
