Updated!! Subclass 485 - Temporary Graduate Visa

Updated: 2 days ago

Amendments to the Subclass 485 – Temporary Graduate visa, which allows overseas students to stay in Australia for 1.5 years to 6 years after they complete studies in Australia, has been effective since 20 January 2021.


485毕业生工签修正法案,已于2021年1月20日正式生效。


Before the amendments, assume one satisfies all the English proficiency, study criteria and so on, anyone may apply for the subclass 485 visa as long as the applicant has never been granted a subclass 485 visa as the main applicant, i.e. a spouse of subclass 485 main visa holder might study after the 485 visa expires on a student visa and apply for another 485 visa. Thousands of international students utilise this operation of law to achieve their migration outcome.


在法案修正之前,任何人在满足英语、学习等标准,并且从未作为主申请人获得过485签证的情况下,都可以申请485签证。例如:一位485签证的副持有人(比如主申请人的配偶)可以在485签证到期之后,学习一个课程并在完成课程之后作为主申请人申请另一个485签证。成千上万的国际学生通过这样的方式成功移民。



Every road has an end, so as this mechanism has come to an end after the legislation amendments come into play.


然而,俗话说的好:每条道路都有终点!在立法修正案生效后,这一机制已经终结。



The new provisions require a main applicant of the subclass 485 visa:


新规定要求485签证的主申请人满足以下条款:


(1) has not previously held a Subclass 485 (Temporary Graduate) visa in the Graduate Work stream; and


之前从未持有过GraduateWork 类别485签证


(2) has not previously held a Subclass 485 (Temporary Graduate) visa in the Post‑Study Work stream, unless the applicants are applying for the subclass 485 visa extension because they have lived and studied in the designated regional area; and


之前从未持有过Post-StudyWork类别485签证,除非申请人居住在指定地区,正在申请485延期签证


(3) has not previously held two Subclass 485 (Temporary Graduate) visas in the Post‑Study Work stream.


之前从未持有过两次Post-StudyWork类别485签证



The interpretation of these three added provisions will be – one will not be able to obtain a subclass 485 visa as a main applicant if he or she has ever held a subclass 485 visa, no matter he or she has held such visa as the main applicant or a dependent, except he or she studied in the designated regional area and has lived in the designated regional area for the entire duration of the first subclass 485 visa. Nevertheless, definitely, no one will be eligible for the third 485 visa as a main applicant.


对于这三项附加条款可以解释为:如果曾经持有过485签证,无论其是主还是副持有人,都将无法再作为主申请人申请485签证,除非其在持有第一个485签证时一直在指定地区内学习和生活。当然,毋庸置疑,绝对没有人可以作为主申请人获得第三次485签证。


This policy will affect those who apply for the visa on or after 20 January 2021. For those who submitted a subclass 485 visa application on or before 19 January 2021, you will be not affected by the new provisions.


此政策将影响那些在2021年1月20日或之后提交申请的人,对于那些在2021年1月19日或之前提交485类别签证申请的人,是不受新规影响的。
