About the Subclass 482 TSS Visa

If you are currently here in Australia on a Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) Visa which doesn’t include your partner, it is still possible to add your partner to your TSS visa as a secondary applicant.


This visa pathway is possible for both heterosexual and same-sex relationships
To meet the criteria for this visa, you must either be married to your partner or able to prove that you have lived with your partner for a minimum of six months
Your partner can be in Australia or overseas at the time the application is lodged. If your partner is in Australia, they will be granted a bridging visa to remain in Australia while the application is processed

Visa details
