Australian employers who are seeking to sponsor a skilled worker to fill a shortage in their workplace are provided with several types of employer sponsorship visa options in line with their business requirements. The TSS visa enables employers to address labour shortages by bringing in genuinely skilled workers where they cannot source an appropriately skilled Australian. It facilitates targeted use of overseas workers to address temporary skill shortages, while ensuring that Australian workers get priority.

Short-Term stream is valid up to two years (unless international trade obligations apply). This stream is designed for Australian businesses to fill short-term skill gaps with foreign workers on a temporary basis, where a suitably skilled Australian worker cannot be sourced.
This stream should be used in the following circumstances if:
Your position is meant to be short term and you are intending to fill a temporary position needed by an Australian Employer
The position will not exceed two years unless an International Trade Obligation (ITO) applies in which case the nomination is able to be filled for four years
The position meets the genuine criteria required by the sponsoring employer
You have an occupation listed on the correct TSS SC482 Skills occupations list
You have the required skills to fill the position which are benchmarked to the Australia and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO)
These are the key criteria for when you can use short term temporary skill visa to Australia.
