Temporary work (Short Stay Specialist) Visa Subclass 400

Subclass 400 visa in Australia is more popularly known as the temporary work (short stay specialist) visa. This visa category is structured for those eligible specialized skilled individuals who wish to undertake highly specialized work or participate in an activity in Australia on a short term basis. The required work should need specialized skills, experience, or knowledge, which is generally not available in Australia. As the subclass 400 visa is granted for three months or up to six months in extraordinary circumstances, the specialized work should not be ongoing.
