What Is A 407 Training Visa?

The 407 Training visa allows people to undertake occupational training in Australia to meet occupational registration or licensing requirements; to enhance skills in their occupation; or for capacity building overseas.

The minimum requirements for 407 Training visa, which is valid for a maximum of two years, are as follows:

Training Visa Requirements - Sponsor

Your sponsor must:

  •  be an organisation that is actively and lawfully operating in Australia OR be an Australian government agency OR be a foreign government agency operating in Australia OR be the captain or owner of a superyacht, or an organisation that operates a superyacht
  • directly provide the occupational training (unless exempt from this requirement)

NOTE: In addition, there must not be any adverse information known that is relevant to its suitability as an approved sponsor. Adverse information includes (but is not limited to) contraventions of Commonwealth, State or Territory Laws relating to matters such as immigration, industrial relations or taxation; pending investigations or disciplinary actions; being the subject of administrative action for possible contravention of the law; insolvency; or having provided bogus documents or false/misleading information to the Department of Home Affairs (the DHA).

Occupational Training

The occupational training must fall into one of the following three categories:

  • Required for registration i.e. workplace-based training that you require to obtain registration, membership or licensing in your identified occupation, either in Australia or in your home country OR


  • To enhance skills i.e. a structured workplace-based training program that is specifically tailored to your training needs, and is related to an occupation on the applicable Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL), Regional Occupation List (ROL) or Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL). You must have had at least 12 months of experience in that occupation during the last 24 months OR


  • For capacity building overseas i.e
    • structured workplace-based training program that is specifically tailored to your training needs, and you are required to complete a maximum of 6 months of practical experience, research or observation to obtain a foreign qualification


    • a structured workplace-based training program that is specifically tailored to your training needs, and is supported by your home government (or an Australian government agency) OR


    • training that provides managerial or professional skills that are relevant to and consistent with both your development in a managerial or professional occupation, and the business of your overseas employer. The training must be provided primarily through face-to-face teaching in a classroom or similar environment.

      workplace-based training requires at least 30 hours of training per week, of which at least 70% is conducted in the workplace (as opposed to in a classroom).

Training Visa Requirements - Visa Applicant

As the 407 Training visa applicant, you must:

  • be at least 18 years old (unless exceptional circumstances apply)
  • have the skills, experience and/or qualifications required to undertake the specified occupational training
  • have at least functional English, to enable you to undertake the program and comply with occupational health and safety requirements (you may need a higher level of English language ability if this is required for your occupation)

NOTE: To have functional English, you should:

    • hold a valid passport issued by the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand or the Republic of Ireland (and be a citizen of that country) OR
    • have completed one of the following English language tests within the last 12 months, with the corresponding overall score based on all four components:
      • IELTS test score of at least 4.5 OR


      • PTE test score of at least 30 OR


      • CAE test score of at least 147 OR


    • hold a degree, higher degree, diploma or trade certificate that required at least two years of full-time study or training, where all instruction for that award was conducted in English OR
    • have completed all years of primary education AND at least three years of secondary education, where all instruction was conducted in English OR


    • have completed at least five years of secondary education, where all instruction was conducted in English OR


    • have completed at least one year of full-time study (or equivalent part-time study) towards a degree, higher degree, diploma or trade certificate at an institution in Australia, where all instruction was conducted in English OR


    • have received a positive assessment from an Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) service provider in Australia that you have functional English
  • genuinely intend to stay temporarily in Australia in order to undertake the specified occupational training
  • be able to support yourself financially during your stay in Australia
  • have made adequate arrangements for health insurance during your stay in Australia, and meet the relevant health and character criteria

Step 1: Consultation

The first step is to schedule a video consultation with one of our Registered Migration Agents. During the consultation, we will assess your situation and your background. We may also assess your employer and their organisation to determine their eligibility to nominate you for the position.

We offer convenient video consultations on any device.

We can also schedule a time to contact your employer to discuss any queries that they may have.

We will send you and/or your employer a fixed fee quote following the consultation which breaks down the applicable fees for each step. 

We offer split fee payments to assist you financially during the preparation stages of your 407 Training visa journey. 

Step 2: Sponsorship Application

This application is lodged with the DHA on behalf of the organisation that is providing the training. The main criterion is that the organisation meets the requirements referred to above. It must also have the capacity to meet its obligations as a sponsor. An approved sponsorship is valid for up to five years. During this time, the organisation can nominate overseas persons for subclass 407 Training visas.

Sponsor Obligations
Organisations that are approved to sponsor overseas persons for subclass 407 Training visas must comply with certain obligations imposed by the DHA. These obligations are designed to protect overseas persons from exploitation, and to ensure that the visa program is used correctly.

In particular, please note that after being approved as a sponsor, an organisation must not attempt to recover any of the costs associated with applying for sponsorship or nominations (including migration agent costs), or any costs directly associated with recruiting overseas workers for nominated positions. It must also ensure that you participate in the training for which you were sponsored.

Step 3: Nomination Application

The nomination application is lodged with the DHA on behalf of the organisation, either at the same time as the sponsorship application, or during the sponsorship validity period. The main criterion is that the nominated occupational training meets the requirements of one of the three categories listed above.

Step 4 407 Training Visa Application

Your visa application is lodged with the DHA either at the same time as the nomination application, or before the nomination expires (generally within 12 months of approval). The main criterion is that you fulfil the above requirements, along with the standard health and character checks.

Once the DHA has approved all three applications, you will be granted a temporary visa. You may be in Australia or outside Australia when your visa is granted. Your 407 Training visa will be valid for the duration of your place in the occupational training program (up to a maximum of two years).

PLEASE NOTE: We estimate that it may take several weeks to prepare and lodge your application, with the time taken largely dependent on how promptly you and your sponsor provide us with the necessary supporting information and documents.

The time that it takes the DHA to process your application is dependent upon its processing time service standards, and may also vary due to a number of other factors, including the complexity of your case, perceived risk factors and processing priorities

Spoke with Matthew today who was really able to help with the ins and outs of my application since immigration had no idea. Looking forward to seeing how it all goes. Gives me confidence knowing someone who’s been dealing with partner visas since 2007 is able to give some sound advise.

We couldn't be more happy with the experience we have had working with Migration Unity and in particular, Taina Silva, who we couldn't recommend more highly. Right from the outset when applying for our Partner Visa, she was incredibly professional and helpful with everything and then throughout the whole process of applying for our partner visa, she was fast at responding, very well organised with informing us of what we needed to do and compiling evidence for us. Her communication skills with us were second to none which made the process much smoother than it otherwise would have been. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had and was extremely knowledgeable about everything. All of this combined meant Taina made an otherwise extremely complicated and stressful process so much easier. We cannot speak more highly of her and the service provided and will most certainly not think twice about doing our 801 Permanent Partner Visa application with the assistance of Taina. Superb in every way - thank you.
