  • As the result of the 2020-2021 financial year, The Global Talent category had an outcome of 9,584 places (12% of the Skill stream) which is more than 2 times more than in 2019-2020 (4,109 places), but less than 15,000 allocated places.
  • Department anticipate that candidates with internationally recognised records of exceptional and outstanding achievement will have contacts within the sector in Australia willing to attest to their achievements, and anticipate that a nominator would draw from a professional relationship with the applicant.
  • Please bear in mind, that the evidentiary value of a nomination may be lower if the nominator is unfamiliar with the applicant’s achievements, or has received a payment for completing nominating documents.
  • Australian peak bodies may charge an administration fee. Nomination will be accepted if the organisation has conducted appropriate enquiries to verify that the candidate has an internationally recognised achievement in the sector in which the peak body has a national reputation.
  • Academics and researchers in fields other than Education below Australian Academic Level D, or its international equivalent, are only considered favourably if they have other achievements in the field of Education.
  • PhD graduates may be considered prominent in their area of academia and research for 3 years from the conferral date of the qualification. Decision makers also consider whether applicants have remained engaged in their field if they graduated more than 12 months prior to application.
  • PhD studies are now considered for the assessment of prominence in the area. PhD students must demonstrate that they have a prior internationally recognised record of exceptional and outstanding achievement in a priority sector.
  • Applicants who are under 18 or at least 55 years old need to demonstrate that they would be of exceptional benefit to the Australian community.
