The Temporary Work (Long Stay Activity) visa allows employers to sponsor overseas workers to live and work in Australia on a temporary basis, either in the sporting or religious fields, or through a staff exchange program. This visa is valid for a maximum of two years.

The visa has three streams:

  • for skilled overseas workers who wish to enter Australia under a staff exchange agreement.

  • for sportspeople participating in high-level competition in Australia with Australian residents.

  • for religious workers who wish to undertake full-time religious work in Australia that directly serves the religious objectives of a religious organisation.
