Expanded TR to PR pathways

One of the streams of the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186) visa, The Temporary Residence Transition (TRT) stream, will now be opened for all the holders of the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa. These are the visa holders with employers willing to sponsor them.

The Australian government announced that all the applicants need to carry on working in the TSS visa occupations. Still, these occupations will not be listed to the government's Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).

Lowering the Eligibility for the TRT stream

The government has also committed to lowering the TRT stream’s eligibility for employment years with the sponsoring employer to two years from three years. However, the stream applicants must meet the requirements for the nomination and the visa.

The Australian government will also be removing the ceiling on the number of Short-term stream TSS visa applications made in the country.
