What is GTI | Australia Global Talent Independent 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.

Basic requirements

To be granted a visa under the Global Talent Visa Program, a candidate will be highly skilled in one of the 10 target sectors. They will also be able to attract a salary that meets the high income threshold.

To be eligible to apply for the Global Talent Visa Program under the Global Talent visa, individuals 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.

High income threshold

Candidates should have the ability to attract a salary at or above the Fair Work high income threshold of AUD153,600. This figure is adjusted annually on 1 July.
