Australia encourages successful business people to settle in Australia and contribute to its economy. Australia’s Business Innovation and Investment Programme recommend that you visit Australia to explore business possibilities in the different states. Entrepreneurs or talented business people are supported to establish, manage a new or existing business or invest in Australia.

There are many business visa options, but most involve a two-stage application process. The first stage involves attaining a provisional visa and then after fulfilling the requirements an application for a permanent visa can be made. Business migrants taking the first pathway must undergo a 2-stage progression to obtain residency. As such, visa holders are first granted a Business Skills (Provisional) Visa for 4 years and, after establishing the requisite level of business or maintaining their suitable investment, will be eligible to make an application for a Business Skills (Residence) Visa.

The second pathway leading to direct permanent residence is only open to high-caliber business migrants sponsored by a State/Territory government. This category is known as the Business Talent Visa.

The Business Skills Program is divided into 4 categories:

  • Business Owner category for owners or part-owners of a business;
  • Senior Executive category for senior executive employees of major businesses;
  • Investor category for investors/business people willing to invest in Australia; and
  • Business Talent category for high-caliber business people who have sponsorship from a State/Territory government.
