Global Talent Visa Program

HomeVisas and Citizenship English | 中文  

Australia has a streamlined migration pathway for the best and brightest global talent.

The Global Talent Visa Program is a permanent visa program for highly skilled individuals with international reputations for outstanding achievements and can contribute to Australia’s economy by transferring skills, promoting innovation and creating jobs. The Government is prioritising Global Talent visa applications lodged by Hong Kong Passport holders (including Hong Kong SAR Passports and British National (Overseas) (BNO) passport holders).

The program includes two pathways:

  • The streamlined Global Talent pathway for individuals who receive an invitation based on achievements in one of the priority sectors. Candidates under the Global Talent pathway submit an Expression of Interest.
  • The Distinguished Talent pathway for extremely talented individuals who have an internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievements in either a profession; a sport; the arts; or academia and research, but who have not received an invitation to apply under the Global Talent pathway.
