Who is the Training and Research visa for?
The Training and Research visa (Subclass 402) is for people who want to come to Australia on a temporary basis to participate in occupational training, observe or participate in research as a visiting academic, or participate in a professional development program.
The Training and Research visa has three streams:
- Occupational Trainee stream: for people who need structured workplace-based training to enhance their skills in their current occupation, area of tertiary study, or field of expertise.
- Professional Development stream: for professionals, managers or government officials invited to participate in a professional development training program in Australia. The program must have been arranged by an employer outside Australia. The program usually lasts up to 18 months.
- Research stream: for professional academics invited to visit Australia to observe or participate in an Australian research project at an Australian tertiary or research institution. Applicants in the Occupational Trainee or Research stream can be in or outside Australia when they apply. They may be in or outside Australia at time of grant regardless of where their visa was lodged. Applicants in the Professional Development stream must be outside Australia when they apply and when the visa is granted.
