Secrets to Fast-Approved 482 Visa Nominations

At Kris Ahn Lawyers, we’re excited to share two recent client success stories highlighting the potential for swift approvals in employer-sponsored visas. For those considering the Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa, these examples provide valuable insights into how you can achieve fast approval for your nomination.

Case Overview

Florist Sponsored by Flower Shop

Recently, a client submitted an application for a florist 482 visa nomination and received approval in just one day.

Child Care Centre Manager Sponsored by Kindergarten

Another client applied for a kindergarten manager position and received their 482 visa nomination approval within a day.


Both clients needed a swift and efficient visa approval process to continue their employment in Australia without interruption. The primary hurdle was ensuring that all requirements were met without undergoing the often-time-consuming skills assessment process.


No Skills Assessment Required:

For both the florist and childcare centre manager positions, the solution lay in the fact that neither role requires a skills assessment. This significantly simplified the application process. Instead, applicants need only two years of relevant work experience to qualify.

Comprehensive Document Preparation:

The clients meticulously prepared all necessary documentation, including proof of work experience, which streamlined the application process.


Fast Approval:

  • Florist: The 482 visa nomination for the florist was approved in just one day.
  • Child Care Centre Manager: Similarly, the 482 visa nomination for the child care centre manager was also approved within a day.

These cases demonstrated the efficiency of the application process when all requirements were met, and documents were properly prepared.


The success stories of our clients underscore the importance of understanding visa requirements and preparing thoroughly. Key takeaways include:

  • No Skills Assessment: Both florists and childcare centre managers can bypass the skills assessment process, eliminating a common hurdle in visa applications.
  • Two Years of Work Experience: Applicants only need two years of relevant experience, lowering the entry barrier and increasing accessibility.
  • Fast Approval: Both cases demonstrated the potential for approval within a single day, highlighting the efficiency of the application process under the right conditions.

Tips for Fast-Approved 482 Visa Nominations

  1. Prepare Your Documents: Ensure all work experience proof and related documents are thoroughly prepared to facilitate a smooth application process.
  2. Stay Updated on Policy Changes: Immigration policies can change, so it is crucial to stay informed and adjust your application strategy as necessary.

We hope this information provides valuable guidance for your visa application process. If you meet these conditions, consider acting promptly to take advantage of these opportunities.
