Temporary Graduate Visa
This temporary visa is for international students who have recently graduated from an Australian educational institution. Depending on your situation, the visa is valid for 18 to 48 months, and allows you to live, study, and work in Australia temporarily after you have finished your studies.
Students are only able to access the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) once as a primary applicant. You and any dependant applicants must be in Australia when you apply for this visa and when your visa is decided. Family members who apply for this visa after the main applicant has been granted the visa may be in or outside Australia when they apply, but must not be in immigration clearance.
This visa has two streams and the length of a Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) depends on the stream that you applied in. If your family joins you in Australia on this visa, their visas will be valid while your visa is valid.
