  1. Hi all, So me and my husband are currently on a 482 TSS visa with me as the main name. We’re applying for PR imminently but know people who’ve been waiting 12-18 months for this to be sorted. We’re hoping to start a family ASAP and really don’t want you to wait any longer. My question is: I’m the main name on our visa - the regulations state that I have to work full-time and can’t have more than 60 consecutive days out of work. But I can’t find info anywhere about pregnancy. Can I take 6 months minimum out of work for maternity without breaking the terms of my visa!? Thank you in advance for any help!

    Closing this comment as all but one response have been useless! Should have known. I’m off to ask an expert...

    @AJ I do think this ‘highly’ of myself. Which is completely fine. Nothing wrong with knowing I’m excellent at my job. Thank you for the useless comment!

    @Marisawright don’t call me deluded. I’m not in any way. Don’t cast judgements on people you know nothing at all about. I’ve said my job is fine or I can find another one easily - which is a fact. I should know. I ought to have known posting on an online forum would attract the pessimistic rude overly opinionated keyboard warriors! Won’t be doing this again! Think about what you post. Try not to be rude. Peace out.

    @Marisawright like I’ve said that isn’t how things would be with my particular job. I’m sure that happens to other women. The law’s there to protect women in this situation from such discrimination. But I get that being a temporary resident takes away many rights. I don’t need to worry about not having a job at the end of it. I just want to check not working for an amount of time won’t invalidate my visa. Anyway thanks for taking the time to reply. I just need an immigration expert I think. Otherwise I don’t know for sure. Have a good Sunday

    @Marisawright thank you for your response. This definitely isn’t the only aspect I’m thinking about, but it was my main question. With the job I’m in I won’t be pushed out and can always get another job easily at a number or places, so that’s ok. I’ll look into the PR employment record side of things. And as regards going back to work, Aus visitor has said I’m entitled to 12 months unpaid mat leave - so I’ll chat to my current employer and see what they say. I think they’ll be open to it. At the end of the day we can all plan meticulously the best time and place to have a child but I could be waiting until I’m no longer able to have a child if I do that!

    Pregnancy is a human right for a person to do whenever they please - regardless of visas/employers wishes. I’m excellent at my job so they should be happy to have me full stop

    Thank you that’s really helpful. We can manage on one salary - just don’t want to be asked to respectfully leave the country by breaking our visa terms. Thanks again!

    Hey thanks for your reply. Where have you found that information from? That’s my question, I can’t find where it specifies the rules around pregnancy anywhere. Surely if a woman became accidentally pregnant on a 482 that wouldn’t invalidate her visa.
