Trial Global Talent Scheme visa commences

The 12-month trial of a new Federal Government visa scheme, designed to attract highly skilled global talent to Australia has now commenced. Announced in March, the visa scheme includes an established business stream and a start-up stream.

The trial scheme forms part of the government's ongoing reforms to skilled visas, as demonstrated by the recent abolition of the subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) visa and its replacement with subclass 482 TSS visa.
