TSS visa sponsorship accreditation
As a Trusted Trader, you can enjoy streamlined access to becoming an accredited sponsor for the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa.
The TSS visa can help you address labour shortages by bringing in genuinely skilled workers where you cannot find an appropriately skilled Australian.
TSS visa holders can work here for up to 4 years. This depends on their nominated occupation, visa stream and circumstances.
Apply for sponsorship accreditation
When you apply to become a business sponsor or are renewing a sponsorship, answer 'Yes' when asked if you wish to become an accredited sponsor.
The processing office will automatically match your Trusted Trader status to the application and we will assess you against streamlined criteria. You will not have to wait the standard minimum 12 month period.
If you qualify for accredited status, your TSS nominations and visa applications will receive priority processing. Most applications are processed in less than 5 days.
