Temporary Graduate Visa
Anyone who completes vocational training in Australia for more than 2 years (certificate / diploma), which is on the "Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL)", but needs a "bridging time" for a permanent visa, may qualify for the Temporary Skilled Graduate Visa. This visa allows you to stay in Australia for 18 months and gives you full work rights. During this time you can gain the work experience required for a “Skilled Visa” or an “Employer-sponsored Visa” and can also improve your English skills. You may eve find an employer who is willing to sponsor you.
If you have applied for the Temporary Graduate Visa you may also be eligible to apply for the Job Ready Program. The Job Ready Program (JRP) is a employment-based skills assessment program that provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate that your skills and job readiness are relevant to your nominated occupation, in an Australian workplace before you apply for migration in Australia.
Note: Since the conditions for the respective visa categories can change constantly, we advise that you consult a migration agent who can provide detailed, accurate and timely advice on the current visa categories.
