The Taskforce appears to be an effort to streamline the migration process for highly sought-after talents to bring their skills to Australia and contribute to the Australian business community.
A big focus of the Taskforce is on bespoke advice from the Government and a whole-of-government solution, to simplify the process for applicants.
What are the requirements?

There are no clear English requirements for the Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce.
It is likely that applicants over 18 years old will need to show that they have at least functional English. Each applicant who cannot show this will be required to pay a secondary visa application charge. This charge is currently around $5,000 per applicant. This is common among the visa products we expect the Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce to use.
Salary requirement for the Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce
The Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce does not appear to have a strict salary requirement in the same way as the Global Talent Visa. It appears to provide greater flexibility.
Australian nominator requirement for the Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce
We expect that the Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce will use existing visa products, including the 124 and 858 distinguished talent visas, as well as the 188 business visas.
For the 124 and 858 visas, you are required to have an Australian organisation or individual nominate you.
For the 188 visas, you need to be nominated by one of the states of Australia. We expect that the Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce will assist in facilitating this.
