    Working in Australia is a dream of many. People believe that studying, working or staying abroad adds to their status quo and as a result, no matter what comes the way; every possible effort is made to get the Australian Working Visa. This visa is for those willing to work in Australia.

    Who Can Work in Australia?

    Anyone possessing the skills required or mentioned in the Australia’s Skilled Occupation List can get the work visa. Previously, these visas were divided into seven sub classes but now from 19th November 2016, new work visas have been introduced. Here, in this blog post; we will discuss about these new visas.

    So, let’s move ahead:

    19th November 2016- New Work Visas Introduced:

    Australian Government has launched a Temporary Activity Visa Framework on 19th Nov 2016 which has reduced the seven visa subclasses to four. This is done to have an efficient and fair visa system. According to Michael Burke, Assistant Secretary; “Applying for this temporary visa will be now easier and simpler for sponsors and applicants. It has modernized sponsorship requirements and also removed the nomination stage for various activities.

    This change has reduced red tape for business, industry and individuals. So, from now on; the new working visa Sub classes will be as follows:

    • Subclass 400 Visa ( Temporary Work Short Stay Specialist)
    • Subclass 403 Visa ( International Relations)
    • Subclass 407 Visa ( Training Visa)
    • Subclass 408 ( Temporary Activity Visa)

    Let’s take a look at these in detail:
