Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa
Work experience is not required for a Qualifications-only assessment to support a Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa. You will need to hold a qualification which is at the required educational level, in a highly relevant field of study to the nominated occupation. Find out more about the required educational level by searching your occupation.
After receiving sufficient work experience in their nominated occupation, subclass 485 visa holders can apply to VETASSESS for a Skills Assessment (qualifications and employment) to support an application to migrate permanently to Australia. If the nominated occupation is the same as for the 485 visa purpose, you will need to submit the SRG29 Post-485 form found with other downloadable forms in the Apply or Track Application section. VETASSESS will only need to assess evidence of your relevant employment to complete the assessment. However, you may also choose to change your nominated occupation for the purpose of the VETASSESS Skills Assessment application. This will require you to lodge a new application online and VETASSESS will need to assess evidence of both your qualifications and employment to complete the assessment.
