An extra year of post-study work rights (subclass 485 visa) is available for graduates of South Australian institutions who have completed a higher education or postgraduate qualification and maintained residence in South Australia as a holder of a first Temporary Graduate Work Visa (Subclass 485).
Graduates must apply for their first 485 visa, and if they have resided in South Australia for the duration of this visa, can then apply for the additional year. This means the extra year of post-study work rights will be available to eligible graduates from 2021. Existing Temporary Graduate visa holders may be eligible, provided they can meet the requirements. Hong Kong passport holders may stay for 5 years.
