Temporary Graduate Visa

Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485)

The temporary graduate visa (subclass 485) allows you to remain in Australia to live, study or work after you have finished your studies. The visa has two streams: Graduate Work stream and Post-Study Work stream. The length of your stay will depend on which stream you apply for.

Recent Visa Update

If you were intending to apply for a 485 visa, this may be affected by COVID-19. In order to be eligible for this visa, you need to have physically studied in Australia for 16 months of your degree (two year minimum degree). If you decided not to travel to Australia or you left and returned home, this could affect your eligibility.

It is possible that you can defer your studies until you are able to be in Australia physically. If this is viable, contact your education provider. Many providers have shifted their courses online, so you may be able to study long distance. However, if your course of study is only two years and you complete some online, this means you will not be able to meet your 485 visa criteria. If it’s a three or four year degree, it’s possible you can study one or two semesters online and not have it affect your visa 485 eligibility.
