A brand new initiative in Australia’s immigration strategy, Global Talent-Independent Program, has been launched today by Minister David Coleman.

Under this program, highly skilled migrants who are likely to earn more than $149,000 per year in Australia will be eligible for a fast tracked application process towards permanent residency. The applicants must be highly skilled in one of the 7 industry sectors, namely:

  • AgTech
  • FinTech
  • MedTech
  • Cyber Security
  • Energy & Mining Technology
  • Space & Advanced Manufacturing
  • Quantum Information/ Advanced digital, Data Science & ICT

The Department of Home Affairs has already placed Global Talent Officers in Berlin, Washington DC, Singapore, Shanghai, Santiago, Dubai and New Delhi.

Under the 2019-20 migration program, 5000 places have been allocated to this program.
