Training Visa (Subclass 407) Overview

The Training Visa (Subclass 407) allows Australian companies and government agencies to sponsor applicants to participate in occupational training activities and professional development activities.

It also lets people undertake occupational training in Australia to meet occupational registration or licensing requirements; to enhance skills in their occupation; or for capacity building overseas.

Training Visa (Subclass 407)

There are three types of occupational training covered by this visa:

  • Training required for registration, this is workplace-based training that is required to obtain occupational registration, membership or licensing that is mandatory for an employee to work in their occupation in Australia or their home country.
  • Training to improve skills in an eligible occupation, this refers to workplace-based structured training programs that:
    1. Are specifically tailored and aimed to the training needs of the nominated person.
    2. Relates to an occupation specified on the list of eligible skilled occupations.
    3. Involves a nominee who has recent and suitable prior experience.
  • Occupational training for capacity building overseas, this is workplace-based training in Australia for nominees who:
    1. Are currently enrolled in a foreign educational institution and must complete a period of practical training, research or observation to get their qualification.
    2. Have the support of a government agency in Australia or the government in their home country.
    3. Maybe managerial or professional employees who require professional development such as face-to-face teaching in a classroom or similar environment in Australia.

The training must be specifically tailored and timed to the training needs of the nominated person.

How to apply for a 407 Training Visa?

In order to apply for a 407 Visa, the applicant must be sponsored by an organisation. The applicant and the sponsor must follow the application process as follows:

  1. The organisation must apply to be a Temporary Activities Sponsor.
  2. The sponsor nominates a person to undertake the training (Commonwealth agencies are exempt).
  3. The Applicant / Nominee applies for the visa.
  4. The visa is granted.

The length of sponsorship will be confirmed when the application is approved although it is usually valid for five years from the date of approval. Holders of a Training Visa may travel outside of Australia and return as many times as they like while the visa is valid. Leaving and returning to Australia does not extend the validity of the visa.

Eligibility for a 407 Visa

In the past 24 months, you must have worked or studied full time for at least 12 months, in the occupation that will be nominated.

Eligibility criteria apply to both the applicant and the sponsor.

  • Applicants must meet the following criteria in order to be eligible for a Training Visa:
    1. Have an approved sponsor;
    2. Be nominated;
    3. Be 18 years or older at the time a decision is made on your visa;
    4. Hold a valid substantive visa (not a Subclass 403, Subclass 771 or a Special Purpose Visa);
    5. Meet health requirements;
    6. Meet character requirements;
    7. Have adequate health insurance;
    8. Be a genuine temporary entrant;
    9. Have functional English;
    10. Sign the Australian Values Statement;
    11. Not owe any money to the Australian Government or have made arrangements to pay back any money owed;
    12. Not had a visa cancelled or a previous visa application refused.
  • Sponsors must meet the following requirements in order for a Training Visa to be granted:
    1. Provide occupational training directly;
    2. Be an approved Temporary Activities Sponsor in order to sponsor an applicant of this visa.

Training Visa (Subclass 407) Condition

With this visa, you can only work for your sponsor. You must work at least 30 hours per week and be paid at least the Award rate.

Training Visa (Subclass 407) Processing Time

A Training and Research (Subclass 407) Visa – Occupational Trainee Stream is processed in approximately 3 – 4 months. If your current visa is due to expire, we may be able to lodge your 407 visa so you can remain in Australia on a bridging visa during the processing time.

Processing times

75% of applications 90% of applications:
44 days 66 days

Training Visa (Subclass 407) Cost

From AUD 310 for the main applicant.

Although the process is quite similar to the Temporary Employer Sponsored Visa (Subclass 482), the training visa is not designed to fill labour shortages and is, therefore, not an appropriate visa for persons whose sole intention is to undertake work.

However, it does allow the visa holder to undertake occupational training with a sponsoring organisation that is consistent with the purpose of the visa granted.

If the sponsoring company is not a Government Agency, the application process comprises three stages; sponsorship, nomination and visa application.

This means that before applying for the visa, you must first be nominated by a company that is eligible to sponsor visa holders on this program.
