Post-Study Work Visa (subclass 485)
As a student studying in Perth, you may be eligible for a Temporary Graduate Visa and Second Temporary Graduate Visa. The Temporary Graduate Visa (TGV) provides recent international graduates with the opportunity to spend time in Australia following their studies, gaining practical work experience to accompany their Australian qualification.
These visas are for international students who have recently graduated with a degree from an Australian institution and maintained residence in Western Australia. In Perth, this visa usually allows you to stay in Australia following your studies for between 3 and 5 years, depending on your qualification.
For regional centres outside of Perth, this visa usually allows you to stay in Australia for up to 6 years.
Students currently studying offshore may also be eligible to apply for a post-study work visa so long as they meet the requirements of the Department of Home Affairs.
