If you are someone who is at the top of your field in a future-focused growth industry, you may be eligible to participate in a program that allows you to travel on an expedited visa.
This particular program is targeted at people who are recognised in their fields for their exceptional work in the following industries: Agri-food and AgTech, Space and Advanced Manufacturing, Financial Services and FinTech, Energy and Mining Technology, MedTech, Cyber Security, Quantum Information, Advanced Digital, Data Science and ICT, Resources, Energy, Health Industries, Defence, Advanced Manufacturing and Space, Circular Economy, Digitech, Infrastructure and Tourism, and Education.
How it Works
The Global Talent Visa Program is one that attracts thousands of applicants per year. However, only a select few get selected for it. The goal is a permanent residency visa allowing the holder to live and work anywhere in Australia, and later apply for Australian citizenship if they wish.
In order to qualify, you must prove that you have reached and continue to maintain an elevated standard of recognition and leadership in your field. You must also prove that you are capable of earning at least a $153,600 annual salary or have recently graduated from a masters or PhD program. Lastly, you will also need to secure a nomination from a university, a professional or industry body, or even one of your professional peers.
Benefits of Working with the Program
Although the application process for the program might seem a bit extensive, it is certainly worth the effort. A program such as this has the potential to help you with your small business, can provide you with support and stability, and is committed to delivering tailored, people-focused visa solutions to provide you with peace of mind.
If you are curious about the program and applying to it, be sure to book your free 30-minute visa consultation where you will be provided with expert advice to guide and support you with the employer sponsorship process and where you can also determine whether or not you want to go through with the process.
You can also go ahead and take a visa eligibility assessment to see if you have the appropriate prerequisites to apply for this type of visa. If you have any questions, be sure to reach out to program coordinators with any questions or concerns as soon as you possibly can.
