Australia Unveils New “Skills in Demand” Visa to Tackle Labor Market Gaps

Australia is set to introduce the “Skills in Demand” visa, replacing the Temporary Skills Shortage (Subclass 482) visa, aiming to address skill shortages and enhance workforce flexibility. The visa offers three targeted pathways—Specialist Skills, Core Skills, and Essential Skills—to attract temporary skilled migrants crucial to the country’s productivity. The visa features a 4-year validity period, allowing pathways to permanent residence, and a unique provision for workers to change employers during its validity. The government is also exploring models to assist employers in covering associated charges and fees.
