Temporary Graduate Visa

This visa allows international students to work and live in Australia temporarily after they complete a course of study.

What is the Temporary Graduate Visa?

If you are currently an International student, completing a course of study in Australia, it is time you make plans for your future after the student visa expires.

This temporary visa let’s international students work temporarily within Australia after they have completed their Post Graduate studies at an Australian educational institution, allowing them to work in any field of study for up to four years from the date the visa is granted.

The visa is also available for students who have completed Graduate studies, however, their skills and qualifications must relate to an occupation listed on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL), and can extend their time in Australia by up to 18 months.

Students can only access the Temporary Graduate Visa 485 once as the main applicant. And you must be in Australia both when you apply for the visa and when you are notified of the visa decision.

Thanks VSA – sounds like a win-win all round! I would like to add that this outcome could not have been achieved without your attention in this matter, firstly in your initial follow-up; and then in the detailed documents and response when requested yesterday. This is an example of the professionalism which enhances our working relationship with RMAs, and ultimately benefits our clients. Thanks again.


Firstly, me and my family are very grateful for the work and effort you extended to me during the period of the processing our Residence Visa. From the initial contact, I had been assisted wisely on the options that I have to take up to the very challenging part of securing my Chinese Police Clearance, where I described it as if I was pressed against the wall already. You were always there when I needed most of your assistance. You all put in extra effort to assist and guide me through till the goal of our visa was achieved and that makes your service a very special one.

VSA were a joy to work with during my migration to Australia. During the start they were kind enough to give us an understanding of the application process and the options available to us. With VSA's help I got my visa on time and without any complications!
