On 23 May 2023, Australia and India entered into a Migration and Mobility Partnership Arrangement (MMPA). The MMPA is a bilateral framework that supports and promotes two-way migration and mobility between our two countries while addressing issues pertaining to illegal and irregular migration.

The Mobility Arrangement for Talented Early-professionals Scheme or (‘MATES’) is a new scheme, established under the MMPA, to enable the temporary mobility of Indian university graduates and early career professionals. MATES aims to encourage mutually-beneficial skills and knowledge transfer between Australia and India. In this episode, Amitava discusses: how the MATES program benefits Indian students with a degree in ICT, AI, FinTech, Renewable Energy, Mining, AgriTech; what activities can one undertake while on this visa in Australia; how one can extend their stay and become eligible for permanent residency.
