As per the latest Australia Immigration News, this program has become a major initiative and a positive step towards the economic recovery of the Australian economy which was previously devastated by the coronavirus. Also, the government has invested heavily in the Global Talent Independent Program (GTIP) and moreover, has tripled the entire intake to somewhere around 15,000 in the year 2020-2021.

If you want to apply, you need to gain a deep insight into the entire process, benefits, and eligibility criteria. Keeping these things in mind well in advance will make sure that you don’t face any hassle at a later stage. The GTI Visa is a perfect alternative to the other permanent residency visas (such as skilled independent visa subclass 189 and state-nominated visa subclass 190).

What are the Reasons that make GTI a perfect alternative?

In order to apply for the Global Talent Visa Independent Program, a candidate is not required to:

  • Have a Positive skills assessment
  • Meet the Minimum points requirement
  • Meet the minimum language efficiency
  • Have a nomination from an Australian state or territory

The person who wants to apply under the GTI program can be up to 55 years of age or can be a recent graduate, Master’s, or PhD graduate in one of the four target sectors. So, do you want to apply for the GTI Visa in 2021 and get settled in Australia on a permanent basis? Well, prior to applying for this visa, there are certain eligibility requirements that need to be met.

What is the Eligibility Criterion to Apply for the Global Talent Visa, Australia?

Meeting the eligibility criteria is the first and foremost thing that you need to do in order to experience a fuss-free journey throughout.

  • Your submitted application must match any of the high tech targeted sectors such as
  1. Energy and Mining Technology
  2. AgTech
  3. FinTech
  4. MedTech
  5. Space and Advanced manufacturing
  6. Quantum Information, Advanced Digital, Data Science and ICT
  7. Cyber Security

You must be proficient in any one of the targeted occupations mentioned above, as unlike the 189, 190 and 491 visas, there is no such occupation list for Global Talent Visa.

  • Must have an income of AUD153,600
  • Must have no difficulty in finding the right employment for you in the targeted area in which you are proficient
  • Must be a valid asset to the entire Australian Community
  • Must have an organization or an individual, having qualification in the same field like you
  • Must have profound knowledge and years of verifiable work experience in the highly targeted tech sectors
  • Must be able to meet the on shore visa requirements for GTI Visa

What are the Steps You Need to Follow for Securing the Global Talent Visa?

No matter if you are applying onshore or offshore, climbing proper stairs is a must if you want to start a new life in the Kangaroo land.

  • First of all, you need to submit an expression of Interest (EOI)
  • In the second step, you need to wait for a UIN (Unique Identifier number (UNI)
  • Secure a nominator (Only 1 nominator is required)
  • Complete form 1,000
  • Lastly, submit your application, for subclass 858 i.e. a distinguished Talent Visa (DTC)

Post submitting your EOI to the GTIP, it takes some days or even months to receive an UNI (Unique Identifier Number). Due to the pandemic, you can expect the processing times to be longer than before. As per the latest news, the eligible candidates are required to wait three to four months (or even longer) to receive a positive outcome on the GTI Visa.

The Australian Government is highly investing its money and efforts on the Global Talent Visa so that the country can face a swift recovery of the Australian economy. So, if you have experience and knowledge in the high-tech sectors mentioned-above, it’s time to apply for the GTI visa and reach your dream destination, Australia where everything is as pretty as you are!
