Global Talent Visa – ‘Am I eligible?’

The Global Talent Visa (Subclass 858) is a streamlined visa program for highly skilled professionals to move to Australia. There is no points testing and it grants immediate Permanent Residency. If you meet the criteria for this visa, please make an appointment to speak with us today. There are 2 pathways under the Global Talent visa:
  1. the Global Talent visa pathway – an opportunity for highly skilled people in the target sectors; and
  2. the Distinguished Talent pathway – a pathway for exceptional and outstanding individuals who do not fit into any Global Talent sector. Some examples are international cricketers, musicians.
If you are highly skilled in one of these areas, or you work in a senior role for a company that provides services in one of the following sectors, you may be eligible for the Global Talent visa under the Global Talent pathway.
  • Resources;
  • Agri-food and AgTech
  • Energy
  • Health Industries
  • Defence, Advanced Manufacturing and Space
  • Circular economy
  • Digitech
  • Infrastructure and tourism
  • Financial services and Fintech
  • Education
If you do not work in one of these sectors but you are a highly talented person, you may be eligible under the Distinguished Talent pathway, but the standard you must meet is significantly higher. Please make an appointment to talk to Work Visa Lawyers if you need help understanding which pathway suits you best.
