485 Post Study Work stream visa

485 Post Study Work Stream Visa

485 POST-STUDY WORK STREAM VISA

The 485 subclass visa’s Post Study Workstream, or PSWV, is a work visa that lasts between two and four years. Students must complete Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctorate-level studies, which require at least two academic years.

It’s a fantastic choice for those who want to stay in Australia after finishing their education. It also assists people seeking permanent residency in Australia, whether through General Skilled Migration or employer sponsorship.

There is no list of jobs for the Post Study Work Visa — your field of specialty is irrelevant as long as your studies are at the appropriate level.

The post-study employment visa does not need a skills evaluation.

The visa allows for full employment and study privileges. It permits you to freely travel to and from Australia for the duration of the visa’s validity.

For a comprehensive application, 485 visas are currently taking 2-3 months to process.

STUDENT VISA REQUIREMENT

  • Only studies at the Bachelor, Masters or Doctorate level count towards the 2 years requirement
  • The studies must be registered on CRICOS, and the total registered study period according to CRICOS must be at least 92 weeks
  • If you have exemptions due to overseas studies, these may count against you when calculating the 92 week requirement
  • You can count more than one course, providing each course meets the above requirements and results in 2 academic years of study
  • You can have a break in between studies

ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS

You will need to establish your English language ability when you lodge your 485 visa application.

You can show this in one of the following ways:

  • Hold a passport from the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada or New Zealand; or

HEALTH CHECK

You would generally need to do medicals for grant of a 485 visa. If you’ve recently applied for a student visa extension, you may be able to re-use these medicals.

POLICE CHECKS

You will need an Australian Federal Police (AFP) Check for yourself and any members of your family aged 16 or over. You must apply for the AFP checks prior to lodgement of your 485 visa.

TIME LIMITS

You must apply for your 485 visa within 6 months of completion of your Australian studies. You must either hold a student visa when you apply, or to have held a student visa within the last 6 months.

BRIDGING VISA
