About this visa
The Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) lets you live and work in Australia temporarily after you have finished your studies.
This visa has two streams:
Graduate Work stream – for international students who graduate with skills and qualifications that relate to an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL): Schedule 1. A visa in this stream is granted for 18 months.
Post-Study Work stream – for international students who graduate with an eligible qualification. This stream is only available to students who applied for and were granted their first Student visa to Australia on or after 5 November 2011. A visa in this stream can be granted for up to four years, depending on the qualification.
You must be in Australia when you apply for this visa and when your visa is decided.
