Online work, social media influencers and digital nomads
Subclass 600 visa applicants intending to continue online work (including social media influencers and bloggers) while visiting Australia for short stays would generally not be considered in breach of condition 8101 or 8115, unless being paid by an Australian organisation (for example, an applicant receiving remuneration to attend a promotional event in Australia).
Digital nomads who use technology to work remotely while travelling between different locations (who are either self-employed or employed by a company without an office in Australia), may also be eligible for a Subclass 600 visa in either the Tourist stream or Business Visitor stream for short stay periods (for example, a 3 month stay period with multiple entries).
A Subclass 600 visa (in the Tourist stream or Business Visitor stream) may be appropriate for Online work, social media influencers and digital nomads.
