Global Talent Independent (GTI)
The Global Talent Independent (GTI) visa is a new visa program to attract highly skilled tech professionals in seven target sectors to Australia.
It uses the existing Distinguished Talent subclass 858 visas.
To be granted a visa under the Global Talent Visa Program, a candidate will be highly skilled in one of the 7 target sectors. They will also be able to attract a salary that meets the high income threshold. Target sectors:-
Space and Advanced Manufacturing
Energy and Mining Technology
Quantum Information, Advanced Digital, Data Science and ICT
To be eligible to apply for the Global Talent Visa Program under the Distinguished Talent visa, individuals must:
prove they are internationally recognised with evidence of outstanding achievements
still be prominent in their field of expertise
provide evidence that they would be an asset to Australia, in their area of expertise
have no difficulty obtaining employment in Australia or becoming established in their field
have a recognised organisation or individual in Australia endorse them as global talent, in the same field as the applicant
Candidates must meet a high standard and show an exceptional track record of professional achievement. This may include senior roles, -patents, professional awards and international publications and memberships.
Places are also available to students who can demonstrate their exceptional talent and international recognition.
Candidates should have the ability to attract a salary at or above the Fair Work high income threshold of AUD153,600. This figure is adjusted annually on 1 July.
In assessing this, we will consider:
