Under the new Temporary Activity Visa Framework to commence on 19 November 2016, formal sponsorship and nomination requirements will no longer be required for some specific short stay activity visas as the Department of Immigration and Border Protection condenses seven Temporary Work and Activity Visas down to four.
View our Temporary Activity Visa Framework Fact Sheet here.
The new framework will integrate some of the existing temporary activity visa classes into the following four new visas:
- Subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist)
- Subclass 403 Temporary Work (International Relations)
- Subclass 407 Training
- Subclass 408 Temporary Activity
Each of the four new visas will have different requirements and regulations, which the Department of Immigration and Border Protection is yet to release.
Over coming weeks, the Department will be confirming further regulations, and Interstaff will be working with individuals and businesses to manage any subsequent changes to visa applications.
