More good news as the Government continues to make changes to the legislation before the election is announced and it moves into caretaker mode.
From 1 July 2022, subclass 482 holders on the Short-term list (STSOL) will be able to apply for a third subclass 482 visa onshore without departing Australia, where they:
- were in Australia as the holder of a subclass 482 visa in the Short-term stream for periods that total at least 12 months between 1 February 2020 and 14 December 2021; and
- make that further application before 1 July 2023, unless the Minister specifies a later date.
Changes to facilitate the pathway to a permanent visa for this cohort as summarised in our recent update.
