If you nominate an occupation on the ‘Priority Skilled Occupation’ list, as an employee you will be given priority processing. If you are an employer suffering from a skills shortage in your business, sponsoring skilled workers from overseas is an excellent option to grow your business by providing you with the help you need.

This will apply to employer-sponsored nomination and visa applications, now and in the future, which will allow businesses and migrants to have certainty that eligible nominations and applications will be assessed ahead of other applications.

Many businesses are suffering from a skills shortage but there is a type of visa which, even during the pandemic, allows employers to hire workers from overseas.

The Temporary Skills Shortage Visa (subclass 482) is designed to fill positions in Australia that have not been filled by locals in industries where there is a shortage of available job seekers and is one of the very few categories under which a migrant can apply for a travel exemption to get into Australia.
