[cp_modal id=”cp_id_9c7a7″]Graduation day approaches.[/cp_modal] All that hard works, late night studies and flunked exams straight A’s finally over. As you stroll around campus, reminisce about the days you’ve been studying in Australia, you can’t help but asking yourself, “What’s next?”

You’ve made some plans, of course. They all seem appealing. They all seem feasible. You’ve always wanted to travel the land; along the beaches and great plain of Australia. Now that you have all the time in the world, the prospect seems even more appealing. I mean, check these unreal beauties!

I know right? If those don’t wake your inner wanderlust, we don’t know what can. PS: there’s plenty more where that come from.

However, you also have this nagging feeling of wanting to get more experiences: that intern position in a fintech startup seems inviting. The payment is not that much (if any), but the position will definitely give your résumé a boost and will definitely impress your future employer. And lastly, there’s also the eagerness to start to work right away in the real world: that firm you worked for as an intern some summers ago has an open position.

The thing is, all of that require you to stay longer in Australia. Your education may be over, but your adventure in Australia has only just begun. You haven’t got any plan to leave yet, but your students visa is running out soon.

You check your options and you stumble on what seems like the best option for you, the Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa:

“This visa is for international students who have recently graduated from an Australian educational institution.

It lets you live, study and work in Australia temporarily after you have finished your studies. 

Well, to be honest, you’ve known about that particular visa all along. All of your friends talked about it. Especially with the latest development (or lack thereof) on 457 visa that took the international student/workers communities by the storm.

But at that time it never occurred to you that you’re going to need it. Impulsive, nothing defines you better than this. Your so-called plan was always to get back to your home country and made an impact there, with fresh diploma/bachelor degree on your hand.

Things do change. Circumstances change. And here you are, thinking: home country can wait, but Australia can’t.

“Students are only able to access the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) once as a primary applicant.”

It’s calling.

Where to start?

Like you’ll find out soon yourself, life is all about options. There are several paths you can take for the Temporary Graduate Visa.

Applying 485 Visa DIY Style

This is for you who like to have full control over the whole application process. This is about doing things at your own time and your own pace. You always believe in the do-it-yourself ethics, anyway. So, it’s only logical that you decide to apply the visa by yourself.

There’s a catch however. Looking for information on the internet can be really time consuming these day, not to mention getting the right ones and weeding out the rest.

You realize that you still need some sort of a guide even if you’ve decided to “fly solo” on this one, both to avoid wasting your time and make sure the information you get is nothing sort of top quality. Doing something under false or confusing information is something you really can’t afford and that’s what brings you here. To find that guide.

You then make a list of criteria about what the guide needs to be. And here’s the “result” of Active Migration Australia 485 DIY Pack against your list.
