Are you trying to recruit more talent outside Australia for your startup but don’t want to wait 6 months for the visa to be accepted?
Well, this is your lucky day.
The Department of Home Affairs is introducing a Global Talent Scheme (GTS). This scheme allows startups to apply for 5 high priority visas per year that are exempt from the skills shortage lists and that will be processed within 17 to 30 days. Those visas will last for 4 years and will lead to the possibility of the visa holder becoming a permanent resident.
This Australian first could be very valuable and could definitely solve the lack of talent availability that is said to be the biggest factor of growth limitation within the startup ecosystem.
