LONDON – (BUSINESS WIRE) – 21 Apr 2021–
The global fight for a workforce supercharged by the Covid-19 pandemic is showing no signs of abating, with Australia sending a strong signal that it intends to succeed with the latest immigration deals under the Task Force on Global Business and Talent Attraction Australia. Under the scope of the task force, there is a simplified fast-track visa program to permanent residence for talented individuals. That Global Talent Visa has been designed to foster Australia’s technological and innovation economy in an effort to enhance economic recovery, increase resilience and promote competitiveness by attracting dynamic and highly skilled individuals to move to its safe beaches.
With no age restrictions or investment requirements, the only requirements for applicants are to be recognized internationally, stand out in the field, and be able to provide evidence of outstanding achievement. The ten target sectors that are focused on the future are: Agri-food and AgTech, Energy, Healthcare Industry, Defense, Advanced Manufacturing and Space, Circular Economy, DigiTech, Infrastructure and Tourism, Financial Services and FinTech, and Education. Places are also available for internationally recognized masters and PhD students who demonstrate extraordinary talent.
Peter Verwer, The Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Global Business and Talent Interest, said, “Australia has managed the Covid-19 crisis very well, but its economy, like many other countries around the world, has taken a hit. This is why Australia created the Global Business and Talent Interests Task Force. It serves to attract high-value businesses and highly talented individuals such as top scientists, technology entrepreneurs and investors, along with their ideas, networks and capital, to work and live permanently in Australia. This in turn creates opportunities for Australians by transferring skills, promoting innovation and creating jobs. “

By attracting and tapping into the world’s cutting-edge talent, Global Talent Australia’s visa offering will ensure that the country remains ahead of the competition. The pandemic has generated a strong desire for change, leading many to seek alternatives. Australia is one of the best performing countries in the world Health Risk Assessment of the Investment Migration Program, and the Global Talent visa provides the perfect opportunity to match top talent with a safe, reliable and successful, forward-looking country. “
India is one of the top countries showing interest in the Global Talent visa program along with the UK and US, according to statistics from the Australian Department of Home Affairs.
