Temporary Graduate Visa

Take a leap of opportunity to enhance your skill sets and acquire local experience by applying for Temporary Graduate Visa in Australia


By extending your stay in Australia immediately after graduating from an Australian institution, the Temporary Graduate Visa, often known as the 485 Visa allows you to take advantage of further opportunities that may come your way. This will also permit you to do your job on a full-time basis without any legal limitations. Additionally, a Temporary Graduate Visa in Australia enables overseas students to complete their Professional Year (PY) in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, any other Australian city where they reside.

Let's consider a few benefits of fresh graduates obtaining a Temporary Graduate Visa:

  1. Temporarily reside, work, and study in Australia.

  2. Duration of stay 18 months to 5 years.

  3. Apply for family members.

  4. No travel limitations.
