TSS 482 Visa during covid-19

Hi guys, my agent has lodged my TSS 482 visa application on may 5th 2020, but up until this point, july 1st 2020, there is still no news from DHA (my employer is accredited sponsor, and my nomination has been approved). Is there anyone who manage to receive TSS 482 visa recently? Or maybe sharing about their experience related with TSS 482 application during this covid-19 situation? Many thanks.

Hi there,

TSS Visas are still being lodged and processed by the DHA, but they are probably taking a bit longer because case officers are making sure that the positions are genuine and that an Australian worker cannot fulfill the position. Covid-19 has changed a labour market and I think the Department is just taking their time to make decisions.

We are definitely experiencing delays on 482s, even for accredited sponsors.

Good luck.

I had mine lodged March not had a response zero. Migration agent has no idea said maybe September. Complete lack of communication but if borders shut until July 2021 waste of time anyway

Hi BlueRidge1989, I believe medical professionals are given priority as they are likely to get a travel exemption......is anyone applying as a healthcare professional or any idea if there has been recent approvals for 482 visas offshore?

Hey,

My application was lodged on 4 March 2020, with nomination approved on the same day (accredited sponsor as well).

Hedged my bets and flew into Australia a couple of days before they closed the borders.

Currently on a Bridging Visa A now, and still waiting to hear back from DHA.

First one I've heard of. Mine was 2 weeks after mid march so fingers crossed. Hope they do something with visa applications for work purposes allowing in before tourist as we can quarantine for 2 weeks
