GTI Program Adds New Sectors And Triples Available Places For 2021

GTI Program Adds New Sectors And Triples Available Places For 2021

The GTI Program has as of 20th of January 2021 added 3 new sectors bringing the total number of target sectors to 10, they have also increased the number of available places from 5,000 in the 19/20 intake to 15,000 for the 20/21 intake beginning in October 2020.

This offers a golden opportunity for those of you that are highly skilled and working in one of the targeted sectors as this visa offers automatic permanent residence so you can live, work, study and be a sponsor to bring your family with you.

There are not many opportunities to be able to migrate and work in Australia, which is a highly sought destination for migration, in the current COVID-19 pandemic and border closures. Therefore this is one of few pathways available right now, the visa process is fast-tracked for this stream and may only take 2 weeks!

Global Talent Independant Program

The GTI Program or Global Talent Independant Program is a permanent migration scheme initiated by the government of Australia in an attempt to attract highly skilled professionals from all over the world to work in targeted sectors which are thought to be important for future economic growth. 

The program incorporated the subclass 858 and 124 distinguished talent visas however to simplify the process the department made all applications go through the subclass 858 making both an onshore and offshore application possible.

To be eligible for the GTI program you must have an internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement and be nominated by an employer in one the targeted sectors. You are expected to have Phd or be completing one in the next 6 months or be able to attract a salary equivalent to the Fair Work High Income Threshold (FWHIT), currently AUD $153,600.

The cost of the visa for the main applicant is $4,110 and $2,055 for each dependent over 18 and $1,030 for each dependent under 18.

The new key sectors added to the GTI program were included in the new direction 89 of the subclass 858 visa released by the department expanded and broadened the scope of the 7 existing sectors such as medtech opening into all health industries or cybersecurity becoming digitech.

The 3 new additions to the new additions to the list are infrastructure and tourism, education and circular economy which is an industry focused on making the economy and means of production more renewable and concentrating on producing less waste.

It is still unclear however the details regarding these new sectors including the skill sets which they are looking for. There should be more information released in the coming weeks clarifying and adding more detailed information regarding some of the changes made in direction 89.

New Places Added For The Global Talent Independent Program

During the first year of the GTI program in 2019/20 there were only 5,000 places available in the intake however for the 2020/21 financial year the amount of available spaces has been tripled to 15,000. This mostly likely due to the increased need to create opportunity in Australia after the economic hardship brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

These allotted spaces do include spaces for dependents such as spouses and children but there is still much more opportunity to obtain one of the most valuable visas to migrate to Australia at this time.
