Exceptional track record and High professional standards of achievements are the two key factors essential to meet the eligibility criteria. For Instance: patents, international publications, professional awards and roles in the targeted sectors can be considered as high standards of talent. This list can also include students who have completed their Masters and PhDs.
THE THRESHOLD OF HIGH INCOME:
Another criteria the applicant needs to fulfill is that of the capability of attracting a high- income salary in Australia. On July 1 every year the Fair Work High-Income threshold is adjusted annually and is established at AUD 153,600.
The assessment procedure involved in this criteria is based on:
- The current salary slips that depict the current salary of the applicant.
- Some of the students who have recently completed their Masters and Ph.D.’s in the target sectors may also be considered to know and assess the overall standing of the applicant.
- Alongside the above-mentioned points, even the outlining remuneration offered by the future job offers to the applicant may be considered too.
If a candidate wishes to apply for a visa under the GTI program, he needs to follow a few steps. The steps are as follows:
- Expression of Interest (EOI):
The applicant needs to use the Global Talent Contact Form to submit his/her Expression of Interest. If the parameters specified are met, then the applicant is entitled to receive a Unique Identifier. The success/failure of your EOI will be communicated to you via contact or email.
If the applicant receives the Unique Identifier, he/ she can use the ImmiAccount to lodge the visa application. If the applicant is in or outside Australia at the time of application of visa, he/ she is required to apply for a Subclass 858 Distinguished Talent Visa. One needs to undergo health and character checkup for himself/herself and also for the family members; if their names are added in your visa applications. It is mandatory to ensure that the applicant and the said family members must meet the necessary requirements of the health and character check-ups.
WHY THE APPLICANT NEEDS TO SHOW THE NOMINATION?
Any nationally reputed organization or an individual has to nominate the applicant. The nominators should also belong to the same targeted field as the applicant. All the international achievements of the applicant must be endorsed by his/her nominator. One cannot be nominated by a Global Talent officer.
