An Overview of the Australian Global Talent Independent Program
The Australian Global Talent Independent program, launched in November 2019, is an initiative that aims to attract highly skilled individuals to Australia. This program is part of the government's broader strategy to address skills shortages in the country and to support the growth of innovative industries.
The Global Talent Independent program is a streamlined visa pathway for individuals who are highly skilled in one of seven priority sectors: Agri-food and |gtech, Energy, Health Industries, Defence and Advanced Manufacturing, Circular Economy, DigitTech, Infrastructure and Tourism, Financial Services and Fintech and Education.
To be eligible for the program, applicants must have an internationally recognized record of exceptional and outstanding achievement in their field. This can include awards, patents, professional memberships, and a track record of publications and research.
The Global Talent Independent program has been welcomed by business leaders and industry groups, who see it as a way to attract the best and brightest talent to Australia. The program aligns with the government's broader strategy to support innovation and growth in high-potential sectors, and to position Australia as a destination of choice for skilled workers.
By focusing on high-skilled workers in priority sectors, the program has the potential to drive innovation and growth in key industries, and to position Australia as a global leader in these areas.
