The Global Talent Visa Program
The Global Talent Visa Program, also known as the Global Talent Independent Program, is a streamlined visa pathway for highly skilled professionals to work and live permanently in Australia.
Australia is after the brightest and best global talent to work in seven future-focused sectors. The program is designed to help grow our innovation and tech economies. This will create opportunities for Australians by transferring skills, promoting innovation, and creating jobs.
Australia is also a lifestyle destination, and one of the most prosperous, safe and culturally diverse countries in the world. Australia offers opportunities for innovation, with strong trading links and a business friendly regulatory approach. Through the program, talented individuals will be given permanent residency to make their new lives in Australia.
In 2020-2021, there are 15,000 places available under the program.

To meet the requirements for this visa applicants must:

- 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

The Government has identified several different industries or occupations in which Australian is in need.
The relevant sectors are:
(a) AgTech (the application of technology to agriculture and food production);
(b) FinTech (technology that seeks to improve and automate the delivery and use of financial services);
(c) MedTech (medical technologies and pharmaceuticals);
(d) Cyber Security (the protection of digital systems connected to the internet, including the prevention of technical exploitation and mitigating the risk of such exploitation occurring);
(e) Quantum Information, Advanced Digital, Data Science and ICT (key digital capabilities including: data management and analysis; artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning; robotics; advanced mathematics and statistics);
(f) Space and Advanced Manufacturing (the area of industry dedicated to space technology and manufacturing; and the entire value chain of advanced manufacturing from research, design, logistics to after-sales service of manufacturing products); and
(g) Energy and Mining Technology (the development and improvement of energy and mining technologies).
Applications made in relation to the above-mentioned sectors by applicants who provide evidence of their current earnings or future salary equal to or above the FWHIT will be given priority processing of their Distinguished Talent visa application.
All other Distinguished Talent visa applications receive the second highest priority under Direction No 85.
The rationale for the direction is to give priority to applicants viewed as ‘highly desirable’ because of their skills and salary in sectors identified by the Australian Government as a priority for future industry growth, and with emerging opportunities for Australia’s economy. These sectors have been highlighted as priorities through the Industry Growth Centre initiative and through targeted consultation with key industry stakeholders including: Austrade; Department of Industry, Innovation and Science; Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business; and academia.
Processing times vary from 2 days to 2 months with many being decided in one to two weeks.
For distinguished talent applications, The Department is considering the following order:
- Priority 1 (the following are equal in priority):
- You have an Australian job offer paying higher than the $153,600 Fair Work High Income Threshold, or
- You are currently earning more than the $153,600 Fair Work High Income Threshold
- You can show that you are likely to attract a salary greater than the $153,600 Fair Work High Income Threshold
- Priority 2:
- All other distinguished talent applications
