485 GWS – Graduate Work Stream does not require applicants to nominate eligible occupation between 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023, with the possibility to extend to 1 July 2023 and beyond.

This broaden a range of Australian graduates with 2 year full-time study or more in one or more degree, diploma and trade qualifications to apply, and removes current 485 GWS visa requirement for applicants to nominate an occupation on the MLTSSL and provide positive skills assessment.
