The Temporary Graduate Visa​

You’ve almost completed your studies at an Australian educational institution, so what’s next? The temporary graduate visa enables international students to live and work in Australia temporarily once they have completed their studies.

There are various visas that make up the temporary graduate visa category. These include:

  • Graduate work stream
  • Post-study work stream
  • Second post study work stream
  • Replacement stream

Each of these visas has their own eligibility criteria and conditions. The team at Visa Solutions will work with you to determine which stream is best suited to your needs.


Who can apply?

International students who have held a student visa in the last six months can apply for a temporary graduate visa. Applicants must also be under 50 years of age and have a recent qualification in a course listed on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRI-COS).

Can I include family on my application?

You may include family members on your application when applying for this visa.

Do I need to be in Australia?

The stream which you apply for a temporary graduate visa under will determine whether you need to be onshore or offshore when applying. Your VSA migration agent will be able to advise accordingly.
