The Significant and Premium Investor migration visas

Investing In Australia

What this visa lets you do:

The Business Innovation and Investment (Permanent) visa (subclass 888) allows you to manage your business and investments in Australia.

This is a permanent residence visa. It lets you and any family members who have also been granted this visa:

• stay in Australia indefinitely
• work and study in Australia
• enrol in Medicare, Australia's scheme for health-related care and expenses
• apply for Australian citizenship (if you are eligible)
• sponsor eligible relatives for permanent residence
• travel to and from Australia for five years from the date the visa is granted (after that time, you will need a resident return visa or another visa to return to Australia).

The Premium Investor Visa programme (PIV) framework is targeted at talented entrepreneurs and innovators and offers a 12 month pathway to permanent residency. A migrant must invest AUD$15 million and will access the regime upon invitation of the Australian Government. Austrade will make nominations on approved criteria based on entrepreneurial skill or talent and ongoing benefit to Australia, and subject to character and integrity checks.

A migrant needs to make an investment by direct investment or investment in an Australian managed fund(s) that invests in one of more of the following:

• ASX listed assets
• Australia government or semi-government bonds or notes
• Corporate bonds or notes issued by an ASX listed entity (or wholly owned subsidiary of the Australian listed entity) or investment grade rated Australian corporate bonds or notes rated by an AFC licensed debt rating agency
• Australian proprietary listed companies
• Real property in Australia excluding residential property
• Deferred annuities issued by Australia registered life companies; and
• Approved a philanthropic donation.

A philanthropic contribution or a combined investment and a philanthropic contribution by an investor is considered a complying premium investment, if all of the requirements of the regulations are met. As the term ‘philanthropic contribution’ is not defined, it gives the government the flexibility to determine what constitutes such a contribution for the purpose of the Migration Regulations.

New World Immigration is proudly accredited by the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority known as MARA which is recognized and official endorsed by the Australian Government’s Department of immigration and Border Protection.
