An applicant can be nominated for the training visa provided their occupation is on the list of eligible occupations for subclass 407.

From 1 July 2024, Temporary Graduate visa holders wishing to pursue a further degree in Australia must depart the country to be eligible to apply for a student visa. Amitava implores recent graduates to consider this is a suitable pathway to extend their stay in Australia, while also obtaining considerable professional skills and experience within their industry.

The discussion then steers towards the eligibility requirements for this visa. Amitava touches upon the 3 types of training programs available under this visa subclass. He chronicles each program and who it would suit. He goes on to share his insights on the pros of the training visa for both recent graduates and anyone who is visiting the country but want to continue to pursue their academic or professional goals while onshore.
