Overview

The Temporary Work (Long Stay Activity) visa (subclass 401) is for people who want to come to Australia on a temporary basis under one of the four streams:

  • Exchange stream: To work in a skilled position under a reciprocal staff exchange arrangement to:
    • Give participants an opportunity to experience another culture
    • Enhance international relations
    • Broaden participants’ experience and knowledge.
  • Sport stream: To improve the quality of sport in Australia through participation in high-level competition with Australian residents to:
    • Participate in a specific event or series of events as an individual or as part of a team or its support staff

  • Religious Worker stream: To be a full-time religious worker, serving the religious objectives of a religious institution in Australia.
  • Domestic Worker (Executive) stream: To work full time in the household of certain senior foreign executives.

This visa involves a three stage process:

  • Sponsorship:- An organisation, government agency or foreign government agency applies to become a long-stay activity sponsor.
  • Nomination:- The long-stay activity sponsor nominates you to undertake an activity.
  • Visa:- You apply for a Temporary Work (Long Stay Activity) visa (subclass 401).

This is a temporary visa.

You can be in or outside Australian when you apply for this visa:

Applying in Australia: If you apply in Australia, you must be in Australia when the visa is granted.

Applying outside Australia: If you apply outside Australia, you must be outside Australia when your visa is granted.

You cannot apply for this visa if you already hold another visa that has a ‘No further stay’ condition.
