Global Talent Visa Program
The Global Talent Visa Program is a streamlined visa pathway. It is for highly skilled professionals to work and live permanently in Australia.
Australia wants the brightest and best global talent to work in ten future-focused sectors. We designed the program to support the economy by introducing innovative skills to high priority industries. This will create opportunities for Australians by:
- transferring skills
- promoting innovation
- creating jobs.
Australia is also a lifestyle destination. It is one of the most prosperous, safe and culturally diverse countries in the world. Australia offers opportunities for innovation. We have strong trading links and a business-friendly regulatory approach. Through the program, we will grant talented individuals permanent residency to make their new lives in Australia.
In 2021-2022, there are 15,000 places available under the program.
Global Talent Officers are in Australia, London, San Francisco, Singapore, Taipei and Washington DC. They promote the program by engaging with prospective applicants, business and industry. See
