Labor Market Testing requirements & fees for Australia TSS Visa

LMT requirements and fees for Australia TSS Visa

Labor Market Testing for Australia TSS Visa mandates the employer to demonstrate that it is not possible to hire a local worker prior to sponsoring the visa. Normally this requires offering proof that the job position was advertised and no appropriate candidates were accessible.

Australia TSS Visa mandates Labour Market Testing for the majority of the professions and sectors. The key exemption is a situation where global trade obligations are applicable, as quoted by the ACACIA AU. LMT must be held in the job position within 1 year to cater to the TSS requirements. From June 18, 2018, the LMT must be held within 6 months prior to submitting the application for visa sponsoring.

The Australia TSS Visa fee is variable depending upon the stream that is being applied for:

• Stream Short Term: 1, 150 $

• Stream Medium Term: 2, 400 $

• Stream Labor Agreement: 2, 400 $

The visa application fee for the Australia 457 visa was 1, 080 $. Thus, this is an increase in the visa application fee. At this stage, there are no increases in the application fees for sponsorship or nomination. It has also been announced by the Government of Australia that a levy for Training will also be applicable for the TSS nominations. The concerned bill is yet to be passed.

However, it is likely that the below amounts will be applicable:

• Large firms with a turnover of 10 million $ plus: 1, 800 $ annually of the visa validity

• Smaller firms: 1, 200 $ annually
