Business & Investment visas
Australia is keen on attracting people who have a proven record in business investment or have the experience and skills to establish a business. The Business Skills Visa category – all its subclasses – caters to people with different levels of business involvement. It caters to people who want to attend a conference, conduct business with an Australia-based organisation, make a reconnaissance business visit, start a new enterprise or invest in an existing one.
Business visas can be short-term, provisional or permanent. You can get a short-term or temporary business visa with a pathway to an independent permanent residence visa or a state/territory sponsored permanent residence. You need to ensure that your business proposal is not restricted by Australian legislation, and that all registration and licensing requirements are met.
Business migration can be really complex, and even determining whether you have a good chance of qualifying can be difficult. In addition, you may be able to qualify in a number of different business migration categories. Most investor and business migrant visas require a state/ territory nomination before being invited to apply for this visa. It important to book a consultation session to go through your eligibility.
There are five streams of subclass 188 and 4 streams of subclass 888.
Holding subclass 188 (Temporay) visa is the first stage before becoming eligible to qualify for a permanent residence visa subclass 888.
