Case Study: Training Visa (Subclass 407) and Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (Subclass 482)
Mr S is a United Kingdom passport holder who was holding Working Holiday Visa (Subclass 417). He had been working for an Australian company as a marketing specialist for 8 months. Before coming to Australia, he had also worked as a marketing specialist in the UK for 6 months.
His current Australian employer was satisfied with his work and was happy to sponsor him to stay for longer. The employer secured sponsorship approval by the Department of Home Affairs.
After assessing Mr S’ situation, our experienced migration agent suggested that he apply for a Training Visa (Subclass 407) for 12 months. At the end of the 12-month period, Mr S would meet the 2-year work experience requirement (including his work experience in the UK) to apply for a TSS Visa (Subclass 482). This would allow him to work for his employer for 2 years, with an option to extend the subclass 482 visa for another 2 years.
One month after lodging his application, Mr S’ subclass 407 was approved. He was very happy that he could continue to work for his employer and stay in Australia. If his employment with his current employer is going well, we will help him apply for a subclass 482 visa after completing his 407 visa.
