If you would like to apply for the Temporary Skills Shortage 482 Visa, your position must be found on the TSS 482 Occupation List.

Not all occupations can be sponsored on the 482 visa, so it is essential that you review the occupation for your preferred position before submitting an application.

Once you have determined your eligible occupation and its availability, you will need to complete the TSS Skills Assessments.

The TSS Skilled Occupation List is published as a separated instrument. This instrument lists three streams;

  • Short-Term Skilled Occupation Lists (STSOL)
  • Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skilled Lists (MLTSSL)
  • Regional Occupation List (ROL)

* Please note that for the Regional Occupation List (ROL) you must also review the List of Accepted Regional Regional Postcodes.

Each of the TSS 482 Visa Skilled Occupation lists is also separated into 3 columns;

  • Column 1 is merely the title of the position.
  • Column 2 is the is the 6‑digit ANZSCO code for the occupation, which you need for your application.
  • Column 3 is the inapplicable conditions, meaning that the number corresponds with the caveats for the position. (Exemptions & Limitations)

Caveats are displayed at the bottom of the page with their corresponding numbers.
