Potential Changes to the 482 Occupation List: Impact on Hospitality Management

The Australian Government may be considering a critical regulatory update that could involve removing the position of “Restaurant and Cafe Manager” from the Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482) occupation list. While these changes are not yet confirmed, it’s crucial for businesses that rely on skilled international managers to begin preparing for this potential shift.

Understanding the Potential Change

The subclass 482 visa currently enables Australian employers to address labor shortages by hiring skilled workers from overseas. If the role of Restaurant and Cafe Manager were to be removed from the list, it could significantly impact the ability to sponsor new foreign managers under this visa category. With the possibility of this change occurring, immediate action and strategic planning are essential to maintain your operational flow and service quality.

Immediate Steps to Take

  1. Assess Your Staffing Requirements: Begin evaluating how this potential change could impact both your current team and future hiring needs. Consider all aspects of business operation and customer service.
  2. Explore Alternative Visa Options: Start investigating other visa categories that may still allow you to sponsor foreign workers for different roles within your establishment.
