The Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa is a temporary work visa for skilled foreign workers to fill critical labor shortages in Australia. The visa is divided into two streams: the Short-term stream and the Medium-term stream. The Short-term stream is for up to two years and the Medium-term stream is for up to four years. To be eligible for the TSS visa, the applicant must have a valid job offer from an approved sponsor, meet minimum English language requirements, and pass a skills assessment for their occupation. The TSS visa program aims to support businesses in meeting their skilled workforce needs while contributing to the Australian economy and enhancing international trade.
