It's officially announced. Main points for visa holders:
  • 路 Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa holders who have been unable to travel to Australia as a result of COVID-19 international border restrictions will be able to apply for a replacement visa. This will allow current and former Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa holders whose visas expired on or after 1 February 2020 to re-apply for a new subclass 485 visa of the same duration as their original visa.
  • 路 Additionally, the Morrison Government will increase the length of stay on the Temporary Graduate visa from two to three years for Masters by coursework graduates, matching that of Masters by reseach graduates. Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector graduates will also receive a two year Temporary Graduate visa.
  • 路 The new visa settings will also extend existing measures for students and temporary graduates to recognise time spent offshore studying online to count towards qualifying for a temporary graduate visa.

Hi, if my 485 VISA was expired after 1 February 2020 but I was in Australia, I'm I able to apply for this replacement VISA?
