If you intend to own and manage a business in Australia or wish to invest in an Australian state or territory, a business visa may be the visa solution for you.
In order to successfully obtain a business visa and be granted permanent resident status in Australia, you must be nominated or sponsored by a state or territory government.
Although the Business Talent visa is permanent, all other business skill visas are provisional for a period of four years, after which the visa holder may then apply for permanent residency status.
To be eligible for a business visa you must be able to demonstrate the following:
- An overall successful business career, record of investment or business activity
- A commitment to establishing a business or making an investment in Australia and
- That it is necessary for you in this context to be a temporary resident in Australia
Apart from being nominated by a state or territory government, you must also submit an expression of interest before you can lodge your application for this visa.
The conditions and rules for Australian business migration are constantly updated and the requirement to provide evidence is becoming stricter. Our experts can lead you through the application process with a carefully prepared business plan or investment scheme that will be fundamental for a successful outcome.
