482 Visa Holders on STSOL Occupations, may get a third go at the 482!

We have it on good authority that given the current skills shortages in Australia (which has been heightened during COVID Pandemic, due to delays in processing of offshore 482 visa applications for those occupations not on the PMSOL), the Migration Institute of Australia is attempting to lobby DOHA for a third 482 visa for those whose nominated occupations are on the STSOL (currently you are only permitted two applications).

If that happens, it would be a much needed relief for employers of hairdressers, cooks, welfare workers and café and restaurant managers who are struggling to find suitable staff.

Watch this space for more details as they come to light!
