Skilled Visas News
Condition 8607 is a new condition that it is anticipated will apply to all primary TSS visa holders. It is similar to condition 8107, which currently applies to subclass 457 visa holders.
As per the Government’s 18 April 2017 announcement, TSS visa applicants will be required to have worked in the nominated occupation, or a related field, for at least two years. Work experience related caveats that apply at the nomination stage for the subclass 457 visa will not apply to TSS nominations.
LMT settings for the new TSS visa will seek to balance prioritising Australian workers and recognising industry practices, and will be informed by the approach taken by comparable countries.
