New short stay visa for the Entertainment Industry
Australia has a thriving entertainment and sporting industry. People from all over the world travel to Australia to work in the movie, television and live production industry.
Whether you are performing or working in as supporting role such as directing or producing from the 19th November 2016 a new framework will be implemented to reduce the red tape.
The new Subclass 408 Temporary Activity visa does not require a nomination or a sponsorship if you intend to stay less than three (3) months. If you apply from outside Australia and intend to stay more than three months, then you will need to be sponsored. If you are in Australia and apply no matter how long for you will need to be sponsored.
The visa applications will be able to be lodged online and it will make for a faster and more efficient process.
