Australia is keen to maintain its competitiveness and is introducing a new scheme for permanent migration of top skilled technologists that will target seven fields having a future-focus. These relate to cyber security, financial Technology and quantum computing.
The Features of Australia Immigration
The Global Talent Independent Program envisaged in June for attracting the top global talent was launched by David Coleman the Minister for Immigration.
This program will attract 5000 professionals in Australia having a top income who are working at the pinnacle of their areas starting from July 2019 and ending in June 2020. The feature here is a fast track process to obtain the permanent residency.
It is also separate from the global talent program that is employer sponsored which became permanent in August after running as a pilot for 12 months.
The migrants, who work in one of seven fields with a future focus, and annually earn in excess of $149,000 in Australia, get the eligibility, to obtain permanent residency in the GTIP.
These fields relate to
• Agricultural Technology,
• Space and advanced manufacturing,
• Financial Technology,
• Energy and mining technology,
• Medical Technology,
• Cyber security, and quantum information/advanced digital/data science and finally
The approach is fast
The scheme will have the checks pertaining to character; integrity and security like all other migration.
Moreover, in place of waiting for immigrants to apply, Global Talent Independent Program intends to seek talent using the active Global Talent Officials from the Home Affairs Department. These are already deployed in Washington DC, Berlin, Singapore, Santiago, Shanghai, New Delhi and Dubai to work in their allotted areas and also guide the applicants in the application process.
The Australian Financial Review reported Coleman as stating that this process will only take weeks, and not many months.
Access to the program by Migrants will take place with a referral from an organization/individual that has national reputation in a similar field as that of the candidate, as per the Home Affairs. GTIP will consciously target the highly-skilled migrants at the global level to boost Australia’s position for competing.
This will take to Australia to the forefront and enable local businesses to tap the best talent globally and achieve a high growth among industries. It will have a transformational impact on the economy also.
Another advantage is that it will create several opportunities for Australians, transfer the skills, promote innovation and finally create job opportunities. At the end through this the country can create top paying local jobs and also make Australia a global hub for technology signaling that it is open for thriving businesses.
