This visa allows foreign workers to work in Australia for up to four years in a job that is on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List or the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List. To be eligible for this visa, foreign workers must have a job offer from an approved Australian employer, have the skills and qualifications required for the job, and meet the English language requirements.
The Seasonal Worker Program allows foreign workers to come to Australia for up to six months to work in industries such as agriculture, forestry, and fishing. To be eligible for this visa, foreign workers must have a job offer from an approved Australian employer, have the skills and qualifications required for the job, and meet the English language requirements.

The base application charge for a Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa is AUD 1,150. The base application charge for a Seasonal Worker Program visa is AUD 270. In addition to the base application charge, there may be additional fees for things like police clearance certificates, health examinations, and other documents.

Is there a limit to how much I can earn on a temporary work visa as a finance manager?
The great news is that there is no specific limit on how much you can earn on a temporary work visa to Australia. However, the Australian government has set minimum salary requirements for certain types of temporary work visas to ensure that foreign workers are not being paid less than the market rate for their occupation.
For example, the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa has a minimum salary requirement of AUD 53,900 per year. This means that if you are working in Australia on one of these visas, your employer must pay you at least this amount per year. The minimum salary requirement for the Seasonal Worker Program visa is AUD 22.13 per hour.
It is important to note that these minimum salary requirements apply only to the specific visa categories mentioned above. If you are working in Australia on a different type of visa, there may be different salary requirements that apply to you.
Which jobs does Australia have in the shortest supply?
Australia has a shortage of skilled workers in a number of industries, including engineering, IT, healthcare, construction, and agriculture.
In engineering, there is a shortage of workers with skills in civil, mechanical, electrical, and structural engineering. The IT industry is also facing a shortage of skilled workers, particularly in the areas of software development and data analysis.
The healthcare industry is experiencing a shortage of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, particularly in rural and remote areas. The construction industry is facing a shortage of carpenters, electricians, and other skilled tradespeople.
Agriculture is another industry that is facing a shortage of skilled workers, particularly in the areas of horticulture and livestock management. The Australian government’s Seasonal Worker Program is one way that foreign workers can come to Australia to work in these industries to help fill the skills shortages.
The specific industries and occupations that are in short supply in Australia may vary over time and can change depending on economic and market conditions.
You can check the MLTSSL the Medium Long Term Strategic Skills List and the STSSL the Short Term Strategic Occupation List, and look for your occupation. These lists are compiled by the Australian Government as the resource lists for which occupations are in need in Australia.
Does my employer provide my accommodation with a temporary work visa?
It is not necessarily the responsibility of your employer to provide you with accommodation when you are working in Australia on a temporary work visa. However, some employers may offer accommodation as part of the employment package, particularly for workers who will be based in rural or remote areas where housing may be in short supply.
If your employer does not provide accommodation, you will need to make your own arrangements for housing. This can include renting a house or apartment, staying in a hotel or hostel, or staying with friends or family.
It is important to keep in mind that the cost of living in Australia can be high, particularly in urban areas, and you will need to budget for expenses such as rent, utilities, and other household expenses. It is a good idea to research the cost of living in the area where you will be working to help you plan your budget.
Can my family come with me to Australia on a TSS Temporary Work Visa?
Yes, it is generally possible for your family to come with you to Australia if you are working in the country on a temporary work visa. However, the specific rules for bringing your family with you will depend on the type of visa you have.
If you are working in Australia on a Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa, you can include your partner and dependent children in your visa application. Your partner and dependent children will be granted the same type of visa as you and will be able to work and study in Australia while you are working.
It is important to note that if you bring your family with you to Australia on a temporary work visa, they will not be able to access certain government services and benefits such as Medicare (Australia’s public healthcare system) and social security payments.
Can I bring my family with me to Australia if I have an Australian Seasonal Worker Visa?
No, if you are working in Australia on a Seasonal Worker Program visa, you are not generally allowed to bring your family with you to Australia. This is because the Seasonal Worker Program is designed for short-term, temporary work and is not intended for extended stays in the country.
