Global Talent - Subclass 858 Visa

The Global Talent Visa Program requires that Applicants provide evidence of their 'Talent', which requires that they meet the eligibility criteria below:

1. Internationally Recognised - Prove they are internationally recognised with evidence or a record of outstanding achievements.

This does not require the applicant to be practicing their field internationally (although this would be advantageous). Several factors would be considered, including whether the field itself is recognised in multiple countries and if the achievements of the applicant would be similarly recognised in those countries. Other factors to consider include holding senior positions in internationally renowned organisations and the completion of major international projects with significant impact.

a. Record - This is not required to be over a specific period of time, as even a single significant achievement has the potential to be recognised as a record. This is beneficial for applicants with limited experience. However, according to migration policy, there is a preference for a "sustained record of achievement" that is unlikely to diminish in the future.

b. Exceptional and Outstanding Achievements - Exceptional and outstanding achievement is the act of accomplishing something extraordinary that places the individual above the average. The applicant must have an internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement in one of the following areas:

  • (i) a profession;
  • (ii) a sport;
  • (iii) the arts;
  • (iv) academia and research

Individuals with an internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement are usually those who are leaders in their particular field. Examples of a 'record of exceptional and outstanding achievement' include undertaking and presenting research. Immigration Policy states this is "the act of accomplishing something extraordinary that places the individual above the average. Individuals with an internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement are usually those who are leaders in their particular field." This may include:

  • Senior roles
  • Patents
  • Professional awards
  • International publications
  • Memberships

2. Specialised Assistance in matters of Security - The Applicant can satisfy Schedule 2, 858.212 of the Migration regulations if the applicant has provided specialised assistance to the Australian Government in matters of security. Evidence of specialised assistance is provided by written advice to the processing officer by the Global Talent & Regional Outreach section confirming that advice has been received from the responsible Minister or the Director-General of Security in relation to the applicant.

3. Prominent - still regarded as Prominent in their field of expertise. Prominence can potentially be demonstrated by recognised experience of achievements, or continued involvement in the area (e.g., teaching, judging, maintaining memberships, public speaking, writing, participating in lower levels/competitions in the area). Also, 'Prominence' can be demonstrated through internet publications, and social media presence. The applicant is not required to be known outside of the area. The applicant should be recognised as prominent by those within the area. The applicant should stand out in the area and be considered as important.

4. Asset to Australia - provide evidence that they would be an asset to Australia, in their field of expertise. As an asset, there must be perceived value in settling in Australia, and the benefit must be to the Australian community, e.g., the public. The benefit must not be restricted to a small group, community, or single employer. Examples of being an 'Asset to the Community' include mentoring, training, and contribution to research or knowledge. Evidence of being an 'Asset to Australia' includes:

  • Evidence that they have created a product/ technological advancement that is unique, and cutting edge in nature;
  • Evidence demonstrating that the applicant’s research fills a significant knowledge gap and will be of benefit to industry, business or academia in Australia, or
  • Evidence of their involvement in establishing a start-up company.

5 Easily Obtain Employment in Australia. - have no difficulty obtaining employment in Australia or becoming established in their field of expertise. The intention is to ensure they are not dependent on welfare support in Australia and can become economically independent within their area and maintain that independence ongoing. The applicant’s own financial situation by itself is not relevant but could support establishing themself independently in Australia. Evidence of ability to obtain employment in Australia includes the following:

  • Employment contracts or offers of employment related to the area of achievement for work in Australia. This may be evidenced by current and future employment opportunities from employers, employment/recruitment agencies, universities or organisations involved with the area of achievement in Australia;
  • Evidence of self-employment or opportunities to establish a viable business within the area of achievement;
  • Evidence of sponsorships, scholarships, grants or other payments intended to support the applicant while they are engaged in activities related to the area of achievement;
  • Evidence of academic qualifications in their area of achievement. E.g. PhD or Masters degree;
  • Evidence of high scores (overall grade-point average of 80 out of 100) during the completion of their Masters degree or Bachelor Honours degree, or
  • Demonstrated track records of previous employment in their area of achievement.

6. Nomination - Be Nominated on a completed approved Form 1000, by a prominent Australian with a reputation in your field or by an Australian Organization. The Nominator must be an: a. Citizen of Australia; b. Permanent Resident of Australia; c. Eligible New Zealand citizen; d. Australian organisation with a national reputation in your field. The nominator does not need to personally know the applicant. Examples of successful nominators include leading education institutions, national sportspersons (included retired but still active in the field), directors of Australian national organisations, including the ACS or Talent Attraction Taskforce (from 27 February 2021), peak professional associations, prominent artists and academic professors.

Nomination Form 1000 - The Nominator must describe how the applicant has an internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement, is still prominent (in their field), and would be an asset to the Australian community. If the nomination is by an Australian organisation, an explanation of how the organisation has acquired a national reputation in the same area or field as the application is required. In addition to the national reputation requirement above, the person is required to provide further information covering the applicants prominence in their field, how the applicant would be an asset to the Australian community, and how the nominated will be able to easily find work or establish themself independently in Australia.

Nominator Examples - Examples of successful nominators include leading Educational Institutions, National Sportspersons (included retired but still active in the field), Directors of Australian National organisations, Peak professional associations, prominent artists and academic professors. The nomination under the GTI EOI does not need to be the same as the nomination in the visa application.

National Reputation - For an individual nominator consideration is given by association. Specific examples in policy include:

  • A senior academic such as a Professor at a university recognised internationally for teaching excellence and cutting edge research would meet the requirements regarding national reputation
  • A nominator employed by a lead ICT company as an ICT professional would be assessed as having a national reputation if that company is a multi-national technology company, one of the world’s largest employers, or a leader in creating technological innovations

The Nominator must make a Statement "to attest to your achievements and international standing", and the Nominators must have evidence of their national reputation in the same area as the GTI Applicant, and evidence of their status in Australia, including the following:
