On 27 February 2021, the former Distinguished Talent visa became known as the Global Talent visa, which offers a streamlined visa pathway for highly skilled professionals, or for those who have achieved prominence in the arts, sport or research and academia. It has been designed to attract the best and brightest global talent who are interested in working and living permanently in Australia (migrating to Australia). There are two pathways under the Global Talent Visa, Subclass 858: a) Global Talent Independent Program (GTIP) is a permanent visa for people who have a national or internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement in a targeted eligible field. These include: (a) Resources; (b) Agri-food and Ag-Tech; (c) Energy; (d) Health industries; (e) Defence, advanced manufacturing and space; (f) Circular economy; (g) Digitech; (h) Infrastructure and tourism; (i) Financial services and FinTech; and (j) Education. b) Distinguished Talent Visa Pathway is an Australian permanent visa for those who have an internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement in one of the following areas: a profession, sport, arts or academia and research;
Pathway One – Global Talent Independent Program
The Global Talent Visa Program is also referred to as the Global Talent Independent Program (GTIP) which has as its central objective to grow Australia’s innovation and tech economies. The aim of the GTIP is to attract top talent in certain critical sectors. The program targets individuals who are distinguished in their field and who are likely to be able to earn at least AU$153,600 in Australia.
In late 2019, the GTIP was launched by the government to target talent from around the world through a streamlined, priority pathway for those with exceptional skills and talent to migrate to Australia and help us compete with world-leading countries by attracting the best and brightest.
In 2020-2021, 15,000 places were made available under the program, which is triple to what it was in the previous financial year. This recognises the importance of the contribution to Australia by those who already hold this visa or potentially will make, by those who are eligible to apply under the Global Talent visa.
