Global Talent Independent program (GTI)

Subclass: 858

A successful candidate under the Global Talent Visa program for permanent residence will be highly skilled in one of the 10 target sectors and also be able to attract a salary that meets the high income threshold (currently AUD153,600, adjusted annually)

Current target sectors are:

  • Resources
  • Agri-food and AgTech
  • Energy
  • Health Industries
  • Defence, Advanced Manufacturing and Space
  • Circular Economy
  • DigiTech
  • Infrastructure and Tourism
  • Financial Services and FinTech
  • Education

Successful GTI candidates 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 nominate 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 PhD graduates, and certain PhD students who are nearing completion of their thesis and can demonstrate their exceptional talent and international recognition in a target sector.

Permanent residents are exempt from current Australian COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Our three-stage approach simplifies onboarding

Every migration case is unique and our onboarding process makes it easy for you to decide the right next steps and avoid costly mistakes. It all starts with a free 15 minute assessment call, where we understand more about your case and talk about how our services may help you.

Clients can then choose to proceed to a formal consultation meeting where we understand your history and needs in relation to a visa. This allows us to prepare a full plan of work with costings. This meeting is a fixed price of HK$2000 and by the conclusion, we should be able to give you an estimate of how much work will be involved in your immigration case. We will then provide you with our Costs Agreement in a fixed price, to be invoiced in stages and only after work is completed. There are no up-front fees.

If you agree with the work plan and costings, you sign the agreement and we start work on your case.
