Bringing overseas worker for a short time on subclass 400 visas

Dec 12, 2023 | AUS | 0 comments

Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) Visa allows you to do short-term, highly specialized, non-ongoing work and, in limited circumstances, participate in an activity or work relating to Australia’s interests.

This is a great visa for employers who are seeking to bring skills for a short period of time.

Typically, the permitted duration of stay is up to three months; however, under certain specific conditions and with a strong business justification, an extension of up to six months may be considered.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Receive an invitation or backing from the organization where you will be employed and
  • possess specialized skills, knowledge, or experience that is essential but unavailable within Australia.

When applying for the subclass 400 visa, you must consider the processing time and the date the applicant plans to travel to Australia.

One of the advantages of this visa is the cost, which is currently set to be AUD $405.

Once the proposed employee arrives in Australia, other visas allowing them to stay longer in the country can be considered. This time will allow the business to assess their skills and, if desired.
