Do not get disheartened if you are searching for solutions to enhance skills in the chosen field, and your student visa is bound to expire soon. If you want to work in Australia, there are certain things you need to do to gain relevant work experience. One of the visas you need as an onshore applicant is Training visa subclass 407.
The validity of the visa allows you to receive training under the supervision of an expert in a particular sector.
What documents do you need from the skilled professional body, and how to proceed with an Australian 407 visa? Do not miss the entire presentation of our Registered Migration Agent Gunjan Mullick putting across different 407 visa facets-from overview, eligibility criteria, types, conditions, fees, processing time, to training plan.
Overview of the Training Visa
Training Visa Subclass 407 is a short stay visa and part of an employer-sponsored visa. You do not require an employer to sponsor you. It is not like Temporary Skill Shortage subclass 482 where you have to be highly skilled. However, there are employment requirements you need to comply with for a Training visa.
"The word training itself says, where you require training and have to upskill in your nominated occupation," says Ms. Mullick.
The duration of the visa is 2 years. It is more subjected to 8102 condition that forbids working in any organisation without undergoing the proper training. Accountants, engineers, IT professionals, and others specialising in the nominated fields should abide by the condition to get trained by experts. Like a student visa, you have to maintain health insurance.
The 407 Training visa is applicable for onshore and offshore applicants. You can include family members in the application.
What after the Training Visa?
Like what is said, the training visa benefits students and clients whose student visas are expiring and want to stay in Australia. If they receive no training, they cannot be eligible for skilled visas. These include Skilled Independent Visa subclass 189, Skilled Nominated Visa subclass 190, Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa 491, Employer Nomination Scheme subclass 186, or Temporary Skill Shortage Visa subclass 482.
Eligibility Criteria of the Visa
You must turn 18 and should have functional English if you want to meet the criteria of subclass 407. You should have an English test result valid for 12 months. If you studied Bachelor, you need Functional English to be precise.
Several regional areas in Australia have different criteria. For instance, the English language criteria should be valid for a minimum of 12 weeks if you are in a Victoria regional area. It is vital to hold health insurance cover to address genuine intention to stay in Australia temporarily.
If you need to be sponsored by the employer, you should meet health and character requirements and police checks.
Types of Training 407 Visa
Occupational Training Required for Registration
If you have the relevant skills, you can obtain registration to work as a Chartered Accountant, engineer, IT professional, and others from relevant Australian bodies. Obtain a letter to work in Australia.
Occupational Training to Improve Skills in an Eligible Occupation
Your training has to be more structured in the workplace. You must have recent and relevant experience, i.e. 12 months of experience in the relevant field. It includes employment and study experience details.
Occupational Training for Capacity Building Overseas
This type of training is for international students who have to meet
It is a structured work-based training of 6 months for students who are
- Enrolled in a foreign institute
- Complete a period of research and practical training for qualification
The training has the support of an Australian government body or home country government.
The programs are face-to-face teaching in the classroom or similar environment. It is for overseas employers who want to send professional or managerial employees.
Visa Conditions, Work Conditions, and Processing Times
You obtain the visa for a specified period from anywhere between six months to 2 years. However, the assessment is on a case-by-case basis. It is granted on condition 8102 visa. The processing time varies from 71 days to 4 months. With the help of a Bridging Visa A (BVA), you can wait for your processing time to conclude if you are an onshore applicant.
Sponsorship, nomination, and fee comprise three parts - $420 is the sponsorship fee, $170 is the nomination fee, and the visa application fee is $310.
Why is a Training Plan Essential?
The case officer decides the duration of the plan. It has to be done by a professional body. The Training Plan has to cover all aspects. It has to be genuine and must be structured to meet the nominee and the requirements.
It is similar to the genuineness of subclass 482 where you have to submit the training plan. The details include training duration and meeting program objectives.
"Follow the procedures of the training plan where all aspects are ascertained and submit training plan documents with submitting relevant documents. Otherwise, you will not be entitled to the visa," the RMA concluded.
