Business and Investment Visas

Business and Investment Visas

Australia is a popular and viable opportunity for investment and business. If you are seeking Australian residency and have plans to invest or commence a business in Australia, there are two options that may be available to you.

Option 1

The Business Innovation and Investment Visa Program, a two stage process for most applicants.

  • The Business Innovation & Investment (Provisional) visa (subclass 188) is valid for four years and will allow you to move to Australia to undertake business or investment activity.
  • The Business Innovation and Investment (Permanent) visa (subclass 888) is a permanent visa that you can apply for after you have fulfilled the requirements of your provisional visa.

The are five related qualifying streams:

  • The Business Innovation stream is for people who wish to own and manage a new or existing business in Australia.
  • The Investor stream is for people who wish to make a designated investment in an Australian state or territory and want to maintain business and investment activity in Australia after the original investment has matured.
  • The Significant Investor stream is for eligible applicants who are willing to invest at least AUD$5 million into complying investments in Australia.
  • The Premium Investor stream is for eligible applicants who have been nominated by Austrade.
  • The Entrepreneur stream is for people who wish to undertake a complying entrepreneurial activity that leads to either the commercialisation of a product or service, or development of a business in Australia.

Option 2:

The Business Talent (subclass 132) visa is a permanent visa which has two streams:

  • The Significant Business History stream is for owners or part owners of a business who want to have a major management role in a new or existing business in Australia.
  • The Venture Capital Entrepreneur stream is for people who have obtained at least AUD$1 million in funding from an AVCAL approved Australian venture capital firm for the start-up, product commercialisation or development of a promising high-value business idea.
