These professions include sports professionals, academics, religious workers, actors and individuals involved in the entertainment industry. this list also includes people internationally recognised as leaders in their field.

The available visas include:

  1. Distinguished Talent (Subclass 124/858) Visa
  2. Temporary Work (Entertainment) (Subclass 420) Visa

To qualify, an applicant has to be sponsored by an Australian citizen, permanent resident or approved organisation in order to receive a Visa

Although there is an exception for people recognised as leaders in their field on an international scale. A visa granted on this basis will allow you to remain in Australia for a specific amount of time.
