Diplomatic Visa – Subclass 995
What is Subclass 995 Visa?
This visa is for all foreign officials posted to Australia (i.e. members of the diplomatic and consular corps and the staff of some international organisations) and their dependents. For instance:
certain international representatives
consular employees or employees of accredited international representatives (administrative/technical staff) such as security guards
service staff (for example, drivers, cooks and cleaners) employed by the diplomatic or consular mission or the office of the international representative and
