Indian graduates from Australian academic institutions will starting July 1 be able to seek for jobs for up to eight years without sponsorship. According to various news sources, international students now work 48 hours each fortnight and have their work visas extended for another two years.
Recently, Australia and India signed a partnership agreement on migration and mobility that will open up new doors for academic researchers, business experts, and students.
A unique programme known as the Mobility Arrangement for Talented Early-professionals Scheme (MATES) has been formed as a result of this agreement. Young professionals from India will have the chance to spend two years in Australia thanks to MATES, which will offer 3,000 vacancies each year without the need for sponsorship for a visa.
Targeting graduates from reputable Indian colleges who have degrees in specialised fields of study, MATES serves as a temporary visa programme. Engineering, mining, financial technology, artificial intelligence, information and communication technology, agricultural technology, and renewable energy are among the professions that qualify for the MATES Visa.
Candidates must be under the age of 31, have degrees from recognised institutions, and be in the beginning phases of their employment in order to qualify for the MATES visa programme.
Details regarding the fee and visa processing time for the MATES visa are yet to be announced.
