Streamlined Sponsorship for Aged Care Workers on TSS 482 Visa in Australia
Learn about the Aged Care Industry Labour Agreement (ACILA), a game-changing initiative to recruit overseas aged care workers for Australia’s aged care sector, addressing critical labor shortages.
New Opportunities for Aged Care Workers in Australia:
As of May 5, 2023, the Aged Care Industry Labour Agreement has been expanded, creating exciting sponsorship prospects for foreign workers in four key roles:
Personal Care Assistants
Nursing Support Workers
Aged or Disabled Carers
How the Aged Care Industry Labour Agreement Works:
Discover how businesses can access the global pool of aged care workers and sponsor them on the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482) through the Labor Agreement with the Department of Home Affairs. This arrangement requires demonstrating genuine labor shortages among Australian candidates.
Benefits of the TSS 482 Visa:
Qualified aged care workers can live and work in Australia for up to four years with the TSS 482 Visa. After accumulating two years of full-time work experience in the country and holding a Certificate III in Aged Care, they become eligible for permanent residency under the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186).
Two Pathways to Permanent Residency:
For Experienced Aged Care Workers:
Apply for a sponsored TSS 482 Visa through an aged care center with a Labor Agreement.
After two years of work experience and meeting age and qualification criteria, apply for the Permanent Employer Visa Subclass 186, gaining permanent residency in just two years.
For Aspiring Aged Care Workers:
Obtain a Student Visa to study English and Aged Care in Australia.
Upon completing the required qualification or gaining 12 months full-time experience, apply for a sponsored TSS 482 Visa through a Labor Agreement.
After two years of work experience, meet age and qualification criteria to apply for the Permanent Employer Visa Subclass 186, obtaining permanent residency in four years.
