Visa Subclass 400 (Temporary Work Short Stay Specialist Visa)

    Australia’s Temporary Visa Subclass 400 is granted to those who will be working in a temporary, short-term highly-specialised job. However, the work or activity must not be ongoing. This visa is granted to you by the authorities if you are invited or supported by the organisation you are working for in Australia. You also need to have special skills, knowledge and experience required for that particular business in Australia.

    With this visa, you can work in a temporary, high-skilled job for a shorter duration of time. In restricted circumstances, you can participate in the work or activities that are in the interest of Australia like helping in the time of national emergency. You can bring the family members with you but they can’t work or study in Australia.

    Temporary work visa Australia allows you to stay for up to 3 months in Australia. The limit can be extended to up to 6 months in limited circumstances. You can’t stay longer simply by extending this visa. In order to stay for more than 3 months, you have to provide a strong business case with your application.

    Our visa and immigration consultants can help you to get the temporary work visa for Australia smoothly by guiding you about the entire process and giving you the recommendations whenever required. You can contact them for free for any queries or questions regarding the process of getting visa 400.

    The 400 visa is for those who have specialised skills to do a high-skilled job in Australia and would like to stay in the country for only a short duration of time. You can include family in the application any time before the authorities take the decision on your application. The family members you can include in your visa application can be your partner, your dependent child or the dependent child of your partner. However, the family members need to meet all the health and character requirements and are not allowed to study or work in Australia. You will also have to show that you have sufficient finances for you and your family to stay in Australia.

    There is no age limit specified for this visa. You just need to have the required specialised skills, qualifications and experience to perform the job and are required to be invited by the organisation in Australia for whom you are working.

    Processing Time

    The processing time of the temporary residence visa for Australia is between 17 days and 25 days. The processing time can increase if the form is not filled correctly, the required documents and information is not provided duly and/or the application charge is not paid on time. The verification process also may also be instrumental in causing a delay in processing of your visa.

    Our visa and immigration consultants can help you to reduce the processing time by helping you in the application process and making sure all the information and documents are provided properly.

    Fee & Cost

You will also have to pay the additional fees for every co-applicant included in your application.

    You will also have to pay for the costs of health assessment, character assessment and biometrics. One must not forget that these costs are not included in the official application fees.
