From 1 July 2023, the Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT) will increase to $70,000.
The TSMIT is the minimum annual wage a 482 visa holder can be paid. Since 2013, the TSMIT has been $53,900.
By raising the TSMIT to an acceptable market rate, it protects against undermining the Australian workforce. It’s hoped that increasing the TSMIT will encourage Australians to take up local jobs.
