I assume you will be eligible for subclass 485 after completing your study as it in total is 2 years.

I would agree that as long as you fulfil the 2 year study requirement and the occupation is on the list you should be ok.. as long as they don't take it off the list in the meantime! I am on a 485 at the moment after having done a postgraduate diploma after a bachelors.

Hi Sarita,

Just saw that you are on 485 visa. I was planning to apply for the same but I'm not sure about its acceptance by employers in Australia. Do companies legally "accept" it?

I might seem a bit skeptic, but its a question of a few thousand dollars and I really want to make sure its worth the spend.

Reviews/ comments would be highly appreciated!

Hi Mate,

I have now applied for my PR 189 visa. However, i was in 485 visa and I managed to get job in IT but as a contractor while I was on 485 visa.I am on a bridging visa now. Usually, employers hesitate to hire someone FULL TIME who is on 485 visa. But, the good thing is, if you apply for a contractor role then there will be no issues (as your payroll will be from a third party recruitment company who usually dont mind hiring someone on 485 visa). So, if you have good work experience then its not that hard to find a proper job.
