Ranjeet Kumar’s Story

student visa australia

There are two kinds of subclass 485 streams. One is the Graduate Work Stream and the other is Post-Study Work stream.

We have assisted our clients with both streams and in this case study, we assisted our client to apply for a 485 Graduate Work stream.

Visa subclass: 485 visa – Graduate Work Stream. This visa is for international students who have recently graduated with skills and qualifications that are relevant to specific occupations Australia needs. It lets the graduating student live, study and work in Australia temporarily, for a period of 18 months. The visa needs to be lodged within 6 months of completion of the students’ course.

Occupation: Chef

Ranjeet Kumar, a young man from India, studied and completed Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery and Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management at one Sydney’s hospitality management institutes in June 2020. His course took him 2 years and 3 months to complete. He approached us to help with his 485 Graduate Visa application.

AustraliaMigrate advised him that a skill assessment as a chef with TRA was required.  As he had not completed a degree level qualification he could not apply for the Post Study Work Stream. Fortunately, his occupation of chef was on the 485 list of occupations.

We assisted Ranjeet to apply for his Skills Assessment with TRA and he received a successful outcome. With a positive skill assessment, Ranjeet’s 485 application was lodged together with the other documents required at the lodgement stage, such as an English language test (IELTS or PTE). His visa was granted for 18 months which means he has time to build his work experience as a chef.

Ranjeet is now working with for leading hospitality group as a junior Chef in Sydney. The 18 months 485 visa graduate work stream gives him both unrestricted work rights to gain work experience as a chef and also the opportunity to build his eligibility for other visa subclasses. In the future, before his visa expires, he can look at lodging a Subclass 407 training visa or Subclass 482 Temporary Skills Shortage Employer Sponsorship program or even Subclass 189/491 Skilled Migration visa.

Contact us at AustraliaMigrate to help with your 485 visa and let us help you build a pathway to a more permanent visa in Australia.
