Training Visa


The Training visa (subclass 407) is for people who want to come to Australia on a temporary basis to participate in occupational training or professional development.

There are three types of occupational training (nomination eligibility types) covered by this visa:

·         workplace-based training required for registration

·         structured workplace-based training to enhance skills in an eligible occupation

·         training that promotes capacity building overseas.

Note: Workplace-based occupational training (not including professional development) must be for at least 30 hours a week, of which no more than 30 per cent can be classroom-based.

What this visa lets you do: 

If you are outside Australia at time of grant

If you are in Australia at time of grant

Note: Part-time, classroom-based study that is unrelated to your occupational training may be permitted, provided it does not interfere with your occupational training programme. The unrelated classroom study cannot count towards any component of the training programme and should be listed in your visa application.
