GTES allows Australian businesses to sponsor highly skilled candidates who do not fit into other programs.
There are two streams within the GTES scheme:
Those using the program so far have primarily been Australian tech businesses, as well as multinationals with branches in Australia. These currently include:
- Australian tech businesses
- Rio Tinto
Similarly for the visa applicant, the health, character and security requirements are the same.
A higher skill test is applied, requiring applicants to have at least 3 years of directly relevant work experience (compared to the 2 years of relevant experience for the TSS 482 visa).
The scheme is not available to visa applicants who have a relationship with officers of the business (directors and shareholders).

The nominated position for the GTES application must be paid at least the Fair Work High Income Threshold. This is currently $148,700, but this amount usually changes each financial year.

Salary requirement for startup stream GTES scheme
