It is true that Australia has a lot of provisions made, but having said that, it is also important to make sure that you meet the standard criteria and only then apply if you fit it. 

For the temporary skill shortage visa 482 the first requirement to be met on the checklist is that you have a minimum of 2 years of work experience to qualify for a nomination from the employers end. Once you get a nomination call you need to fill out applications which you need to submit and once it reaches them, they will alert you of the updates. As such there is no age limit to apply for this kind of a visa, but you need to make sure that there are no pending dues of any kind and along with that you need to make sure that you have enough aids to help you financially.
