Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) – Reduction in work experience requirement

The Australian Government delivered the Federal Budget for 2024/2025 on 14 May 2024, which includes several immigration reforms. 185,000 places have been allocated to the permanent Migration Program, which will include an allocation of 132,200 places (approximately 71 per cent of the program) to the skilled stream, designed to improve the productive capacity of the economy and fill skill shortages in the labour market, particularly those in regional Australia.

The Government also announced that they will reduce the work experience requirement for the Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa from two years to one year for all applicants from 23 November 2024 onwards, making it easier for newly qualified practitioners to consider Australia earlier in their career.
