Update on TR 485

Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485), usually known as TR, lets you work and live in Australia temporarily after you have finished your studies. Holding this visa, you can travel, work, and study in Australia.

  • Eligible Graduates will be able to apply outside Australia if they have graduated from an Australian education institution and have been unable to return to Australia to apply for a post-study work visa because of COVID-19 travel restrictions.

  • Additional time will be given for applicants to provide English language results where COVID-19 has disrupted access to these services. Additional time will also be provided to undertake biometric collection and health checks where COVID-19 has disrupted access to services

COVID-19 Concession Period

COVID-19 concession period began on 1 February 2020 and will continue until a date determined by the Minister in a legislative instrument.
