Australia: Work Visa Updates

The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) has recently announced that they will no longer be accepting ‘priority processing requests’ in relation to skill visas.

The two visas impacted by this announcement is:

  • Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Visa (Subclass 482)
  • Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa (Subclass 457)

Following from this, TSS visa applications will now be prioritized accordingly, so that the current applications are completed by the end of the year.
