Frequently asked questions

Does visa 482 require an age limit like visa 189 and visa 190?

No. There is no age restriction for this visa.

The occupation list changes after I apply for visa 482. Will this impact my visa application?

No. It will not affect your application result because the DHA will process your application based on the occupation list at the time of making your application.

Can I extend my visa 482?

Yes. You can renew your Subclass 482. However, it depends on your visa circumstances that you can renew it onshore or offshore.

How to write a GTE to apply for visa 482 with short-term stream?

Basically, you need to persuade the case officer that:

    • You come to Australia to work for the employer sponsor during the visa 482 validity period.
    • You will only live in Australia temporarily. After your visa 482 expires, you will return to your home country.

Contact VEM for further explanation.
