Temporary Activity and Temporary Work Visas

The purpose of Subclass 408 is to support the Australian community and the Australian economy by enabling overseas participants to participate in a range of activities including social, cultural and research activities, and international events. There are 10 activity types under the Subclass 408 visa – Invited Participant; Sport; Religious Worker; Domestic Worker; Superyacht Crew; Research; Staff Exchange; Special Programs; Entertainment and Australian Government Endorsed Event. 

The Subclass 400 visa is for people who can demonstrate the need to undertake short-term, non-ongoing, highly specialised work in Australia. It provides a pathway for workers with highly specialised skills, knowledge or experience that can assist Australian business and which cannot reasonably be found in the Australian labour market.  

The Subclass 403 Pacific Labour Scheme enables people from (approved) specified Pacific countries to work in non-seasonal low and semi- skilled occupations in rural and regional Australia. The Subclass 403 Seasonal Worker Program stream enables people from Timor-Leste, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu or Vanuatu to work as a seasonal labourer in selected industries for Australian employers who can’t source local labour.
