Training and Research Subclass visa is intended to promote international Goodwill by allowing Australian organisations to sponsor people who are visiting Australia to participate in professional development activities, research, or occupational training. This visa is intended to benefit Australia by filling labour shortages. In a situation where an expert in a particular field of work cannot be found in the country, Australian government grants Training and Research visa to foreign experts. At Best Immigration Lawyers, we want to help enrich the Australian labour market by giving people from other countries the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise. We also want to support your dreams of visiting Australia and undertaking work on a full or part-time basis. As Australia is a fast developing country striving towards constant improvement, you are bound to be provided with the means needed to further your research and studies.
