Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alex Hawke said these measures recognise the contribution of skilled migrants who remained here during the COVID-19 pandemic and encourage them to stay in Australia.

“The changes complement the Government’s recent announcement that fully vaccinated eligible temporary and provisional visa holders may enter Australia without a travel exemption from 1 December 2021,” he said.

These visa changes will improve access to permanent residence for:

  • Existing Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa holders in the short-term stream

  • Legacy Temporary Work Skilled (subclass 457) visa holders who no longer meet the age requirement.

In recognition of ongoing border arrangements, the Government will also extend by a further six-month Visa Application Charge waivers for new Visitor visa applicants overseas where their visa expired or will expire, between 1 January 2022 and 30 June 2022.

“This measure will support the tourism industry by welcoming back visitors once it is safe to do so,” Minister Hawke said.

The Government has announced further measures to support the return of international students and graduates, bolstering the international education industry by:

  • Allowing Temporary Graduate visa holders, who have been unable to travel to Australia as a result of COVID-19 international border restrictions, to apply for a replacement visa;

  • Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) Visa Period Extend to 3 years for Master by Coursework (previously was 2 years), and

  • Extended to 2 Years for VET courses (previously was 18 months)

  • Extending the existing measure for student and temporary graduates to recognize time spent offshore studying online to count towards qualifying for a Temporary Graduate visa application.
