How to Apply for Australian Agriculture or Farming Visa?

How to Apply for Australian Agriculture or Farming Visa?

The agriculture sector is critical to Australia’s economic prosperity, and the COVID-19 pandemic has made it more difficult for farmers to find the workforce they need to fill labour shortages. Applying for a farmer visa in Australia can be applied for by skilled and semi-skilled migrants as well. The farmer visa application process entails applying for the visa via the temporary skills shortage (TSS) subclass 482. Since meeting those conditions, the visa also requires you to qualify for permanent residence.You may apply for a visa both within and outside Australia. If you are overseas, you can apply if you have been nominated by a sponsor, and you will have to apply online via your Immi account. If you are already in Australia and have a substantive or bridging visa, you can apply for these visa types (A, B, or C).This stream provides you with a four-year work visa that can lead to permanent residency. The visa entitles you to work in Australia for one of the 31 qualifying professions. You can also study in Australia (without government funding) and fly to and from Australia as many times as you want. There will be no visa sticker on your passport.There is a total of 31 occupations who can apply for the TSS subclass 482 visa, namely:
