Finding a nominator is the most common problem faced by Offshore candidates eligible for the Global Talent Visa. Well, we have some marvellous news. You can also get help from our registered immigration partner to find an Australian Nominator.
The Australian Computer Society is providing nomination for candidates who will be an asset to their industry. Both onshore and offshore candidates are eligible for the nomination. Read how to lodge an Expression of Interest for your Global Talent Independent application.
The Australian Computer Society will provide nominations to candidates for the following target sectors:
- Cyber Security
- Quantum Information
- Advanced Digital
- Data Science
If you are a candidate working as a Programmer or a Data Scientist, you will fall into one of these categories.
Steps to Apply for Global Talent Nomination from ACS
- Have a valid UID from the Global Talent Officer after submitting an Expression of Interest
- Send your Resume to ACS via email explaining your qualifications, interest in the GTI program, outlining experience in the sectors listed above
- If ACS finds your application eligible, they might ask you for an interview and the nomination fee of $500
- ACS will complete the Nomination Form (Form 1000) and send you a copy to lodge with your application
They set the fees for the nomination at $500. The process is like the evaluation process for the Global Talent Visa. It is specific to each individual application and they can refuse to provide a nomination.
This opens up eligibility for candidates who have a UID from the department but unable to find a nominator in Australia. It only goes to show the Government is planning to continue this program and perhaps even extend it.
