If you have a TSS 482 approved it is possible to change employers, only after the following requirements have been met:

  1. The new employer must become an Approved Business Sponsor (Stage one of the 482 Process)
  2. A Nomination application must be lodged for the same nominated Occupation as you currently hold.
    • You cannot start working for the new employer until the sponsorship and nomination are approved.
    • You need to be aware of the conditions on your 482 visa such as 8607, which says that your visa should be cancelled if you cease working for more than 60 days.

If you want to change employers and also to change positions, then you will need to consider the following three stages:

  1. The new employer must become an Approved Business Sponsor (Stage one of the 482 Process)
  2. A Nomination application must be lodged for the same nominated Occupation as you currently hold.
    • You cannot start working for the new employer until the sponsorship and nomination are approved.
    • You need to be aware of the conditions on your 482 visa such as 8607, which says that your visa should be cancelled if you cease working for more than 60 days.
  3. You may need to also lodge a new visa application.  If the new position is a different occupation, then the Department of Immigration may need to check if you have the required skills for the new occupation.
