The Global Talent Independent (GTI) Program allows professional engineers to nominate to work and live permanently in Australia. Nomination by a recognised Australian organisation is a mandatory requirement for GTI applicants to live and work in Australia on this visa.  

Engineers Australia CEO, Dr Bronwyn Evans AM, said the organisation was proud to be one of the organisations charged with nominating engineering professionals.

“The GTI Program is a streamlined visa pathway for highly skilled professionals to work and live permanently in Australia. It seeks to attract the brightest and best global talent to work in future focused sectors to help grow Australia’s innovation and tech economies,” said Dr Evans.

“A list of priority sectors has been identified by the Department of Home Affairs, and Engineers Australia may nominate candidates in these target sectors who fulfill requirements and can provide evidence of their excellence.”

If candidates complete a self-assessment and are eligible for GTI nomination assessment, they can apply to Engineers Australia to support their nomination.  

To be eligible to apply for the Global Talent Visa Program applicants must:   

  • Prove they are internationally recognised, with evidence of outstanding achievements. 
  • Still be prominent in their field of expertise.  
  • Provide evidence that they would be an asset to Australia, in their area of expertise.   
  • Have no difficulty obtaining employment in Australia or becoming established in their field 
  • Have a recognised organisation or individual in Australia in the same field as they endorse them as global talent.   

Places are also available to certain PhD students who can demonstrate exceptional talent and international recognition.
