Temporary Activity Visa (408)
The Temporary Activity Visa (Subclass 408) is a temporary visa that allows individuals to come to Australia for a short-term stay to participate in specific activities, events, or work on short-term projects.
The Temporary Activity Visa has various streams, including:
- Entertainment Stream: This stream allows individuals in the entertainment industry to work in Australia temporarily. This includes actors, musicians, and other performers.
- Exchange Stream: This stream allows individuals to participate in a cultural exchange program, including youth exchange programs, school exchange programs, or other cultural exchange activities.
- Sport Stream: This stream allows individuals to participate in a specific sports event, including coaches, players, and support staff.
- Religious Worker Stream: This stream allows individuals who are members of a religious organization to work temporarily in Australia as a religious worker.
- Special Program Stream: This stream allows individuals to participate in special programs, including community programs, disaster relief work, or international aid work.
To be eligible for a Temporary Activity Visa, applicants must provide evidence of their participation in the relevant activity, have health insurance for the duration of their stay in Australia, and meet health and character requirements.
It’s important to note that the Temporary Activity Visa does not allow for permanent residency in Australia, and visa conditions and eligibility criteria can change at any time. It’s essential to check the Department of Home Affairs website for up-to-date information before applying.
