The visa program provides a practical solution for businesses facing these challenges by allowing them to source talent from overseas. Various industries, such as healthcare, information technology, engineering, and hospitality, have experienced shortages of skilled workers. The SC 482 helps bridge the gap between demand and available local talent by providing a pathway for skilled individuals to work in these fields. Also, the visa program has provisions for occupations not on the skilled occupation lists but deemed critical for specific regions. This helps distribute skilled workers more evenly across the country and supports economic development in regional areas.
