To make the application process simple for a temporary worker willing to stay in Australia, the government of Australia introduced a series of new temporary work visa subclasses that would be available from November 19, 2016.

The four new subclasses are as follows:

  • Subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) Visa.
  • Subclass 403 Temporary Work (International Relations) Visa.
  • Subclass 407 Training Visa.
  • Subclass 408 Temporary Activity Visa.

The requirement of nomination & sponsorship for specific short stay formalities have been discarded so as to reduce red tapism for foreign workers, businesses and industry, according to sources. The applicants have a facility to apply online for visa and sponsorship, under a temporary activities sponsor, instead of the existing six sponsorships such as entertainment, long stay activity, professional development, special programme, superyacht crew and training & research.

The new visas are available for foreign nationals post November 19, 2016.
