But I have seen them giving this visa to many postdocs. I don't think a postdoc is anything but a an early career academic.What you said is exactly the point though. The GTI visa is meant for highly established professionals (or super new talent). If you’re a junior academic, the GTI visa isn’t for you. DHA isn’t expecting junior academics to somehow “jump” up the ladder. They’re telling them to apply for a visa they’re qualified for.
I appreciate that DHA specified these guidelines because it offers an objective metric.
In this case they may not give this visa to any postdoc. They might changed the rule and any postdoc is not qualified any more.
