Episode 1: Special Visa SchemesThe Global Talent Program and Victorian State Visa Nomination Program 

Australia wants to attract talented people from all over the world. This podcast explores the exciting visa programs provided by both Australia and Victoria that allow Australian companies to recruit internationally and assist individuals from overseas who want to work in Australia. Both federal and state visa programs provide a pathway to permanent residency.

The Podcast answers your visa questions: Who they are for? Why are they offered? How many visas are there and when are they available? We also go into detail on how to apply, as well as case studies of organisations or individuals that have used them.
