9.2.6.01 Visa Subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Activity)

This is a temporary visa, and does not give the holder permanent residence status, and therefore the holder is not entitled to any social security payments.

 

Note: DIAC advises that this visa subclass will come into effect from 23 March 2013, and that it replaces the Business (Short Stay) 456 and Sponsored Business Visitor (Short Stay) 459 visas in circumstances where the applicant will be engaging in labour market activities. In circumstances where an applicant will be in Australia for a business visit, the Visitor 600 visa is applicable.

 

There will be three streams to this visa subclass:

  • Highly specialised work
  • Invited participant
  • Australia's interest

 

Note: DIAC advises that this subclass will not allow applications from clients under the immunities and privileges provisions. From 25 November 2012, applications by persons under immunities and privileges provisions will be advised to apply for a visa subclass 403 Temporary Work (International Relations).
