Temporary Graduate Visa Subclass 485

International students who happen to have completed 2 years of study in Australia are the main beneficiaries of the Temporary Graduate subclass 485 visa. With this visa, they are able to work for a period of 18 months to 4 years depending on their situation.

The Temporary Graduate subclass 485 visa is one very efficient way to extend the stay in Australia and improve chances of becoming eligible for a permanent or provisional skilled visa. Applying for this visa requires that the main applicant be in Australia, while the visa is applied for, though family members of the applicant who are applying may be in or outside Australia. The only limitation is that they should not be in immigration clearance.

There are 2 visa types to chose from:

  1. Post Study Work
  2. Graduate Work
