Visiting Academics

Visitors are responsible for applying for their visas, and should be assisted by the Faculty or organisational unit that they will be working with. Human Resources can advise on the most appropriate visa, and will issue offers of honorary and visiting appointments required by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship as part of the application process.

Please be aware that the Visiting Academic visa (subclass 419) is no longer available. Visiting academics may be eligible for a “Training and Research Visa – Subclass 402”. Information regarding this visa is provided below, or refer to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection information at http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/402.aspx

 

Occupational trainees

People who wish to come to the University for training to upgrade their skills (including research done as part of a PhD at their home university) may be eligible for a “Training and Research Visa – Subclass 402”. UWA is approved by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as a Training and Research Sponsor.  

The Faculty, School or organisational unit that the person will be working with is responsible for arranging the visa, any fees that may apply, and for ensuring that the sponsor obligations are met. In order to meet the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s record-keeping requirements, after sponsorship has been approved a PDF copy of all documents must be emailed to HR Services for central filing (TRIM file F45399).
