Highlights

  • Temporary Graduate visa subclass 485 - Graduate work stream is for international students who have recently graduated with skills and qualifications that are relevant to specific occupations Australia needs.
  • The new migration amendment will take effect from 1 July 2022 until 30 June 2023 with the provision of a possible extension.
  • Nominated occupation and skills assessments may have been removed, but other eligibility requirements remain.

An international student from Melbourne Joshua Sagrilato is optimistic about the new migration amendment for Temporary Graduate visa subclass 485 - Graduate work stream. 

Speaking to SBS Filipino, Joshua said that "this is good for us international students as this will be less hassle. This will be a great motivation for other aspiring students to choose Australia instead of other countries."

28-year-old Joshua is studying Bachelor in Business and Information System, he will graduate in the year 2024 and will apply for 485 visa.

His brother who will also apply for a student visa in Australia will take VET course on Leadership Management and "will benefit from this new rule."
