Obtaining a global talent visa is no small feat. Right now, competition is stronger than ever, with many excellent candidates waiting months to receive invitations and some left waiting indefinitely.
Despite these challenges, The Migration Agency continues to quickly and effectively help individuals acquire visa invitations. The innovative medical technology and life sciences business that we recently worked with is one such example.
Bringing the work of Australian scientists to the international market
Traditionally, if a life scientist wanted to bring a drug or medical invention to market, they’d have to land a contract with a pharmaceutical company for distribution. In addition to navigating regulatory hurdles and rigorous testing, life scientists could find themselves competing with their own distributors if pharma companies already carried a similar product.
Our client turns this model on its head by helping life scientists commercialise their inventions. Thanks to prestigious global partners and a business-minded approach, they can help life scientists at all stages of the development life cycle, from research and testing through to marketing and distribution.
Like many health science companies, this business turned its focus to COVID-19 technologies in response to the pandemic. They’re working to develop a small, easy-to-use antibody test that could produce results in real-time.
To quickly bring this invention and others to fruition, our client needed a talented individual who could help them develop a streamlined compliance and regulation strategy – but this person had to get a global talent visa first.
A successful Global Talent Visa outcome with TMA
Our client effectively needed a highly-skilled regulatory expert with experience in commercialising medical products to fill the void in their business. However, regulators compliance professionals aren’t often invited to the country on global talent visas, the focus tends to be on the scientist rather than the regulatory affairs expert.
To help this individual obtain a visa, we drew on our deep understanding of our client’s unique business model and the applicant’s unique and innovative skillset, our thorough knowledge of the immigration system, and the timeliness of the COVID technology development to build a compelling case. We emphasised the knowledge and international perspective that this person could bring to the business and Australia, especially in the context of the COVID-19 testing invention. After submitting the application, it only took two days for this individual to receive an invitation to apply for the global talent visa.
This approval was a significant success, especially during a time when so many people are waiting for months to receive invites. TMA’s unique approach saved the client many hours of effort especially when the eligibility requirements changed partway through the process, and allowed them to quickly get this key team member approved and secured for ongoing work on a permanent residence visa.
