This visa is good for people looking to enter the country for a temporary purpose and then leave the country once their work is complete. With this visa, usually you can be in the country for a period of three months, but in some special circumstances even six months can be allowed depending upon the nature of the work and activity in question.
Why should you apply for this visa?
There are many reasons why this visa type is filed by the applicants. Some of the circumstances where this will be the best for you are:
• If you are looking to visit the country to do some short-term, non-ongoing and highly specialized work, this is the visa you should apply for.
• Under limited circumstances, if you are going to visit Australia in order to participate in some work or activity that is related to Australia’s interests.
• To be a part of an event or a series of events that are not of an ongoing basis, that is at an invitation from an Australian organization.
Things to consider when applying for this Visa
When applying for this visa, there are several things you should be aware of and keep in mind. First of all, you should be outside of Australia when you are applying for this visa and the application is being decided. Also, you must arrive to the country within the six month period after you have been granted the visa.
When you are applying for this visa, you must allow some time in order for the application to be processed. Take into account the date you are looking to travel into the country on and lodge the process based on that date. Usually the authorities take around one month to process these details such as character and health checks that are done.
It is highly recommended that you start this process keeping more than a time period six months of when you are actually intending to travel. This will give the authorities enough time to process your application and would cause you to delay any of your plans. Also, you will need to re-apply if you do not enter in Australia in six months’ time once you have been granted the visa.
