Understanding the Australian Business Visa

Applicants able to show that they have had at least 10% ownership of an Australian business for at least 18 months would also be eligible to apply for this visa but would still have to satisfy basic criteria and pass a points test which incorporates their age, English language ability, business attributes and net assets.

Understanding The Australian Business Visa

To be eligible for one of the provisional business visas, the applicant must have:

• a successful business or investment career; and
• a genuine commitment to engage in business activities in Australia.

Business Skills Program Subclasses

There are four main visa subclasses under the Business Skills Program:

1. Business Owner Visa

Foreign based business owners interested in expanding their businesses to an Australian state or territory can apply for a visa under the Business Owner visa subclass.

2. Senior Executive Visa

High-level executives employed by major international businesses, can apply under the Senior Executive visa subclass. Those who secure sponsorship will apply under the State/Territory Sponsored Senior Executive visa subclass.

3. Investor Visa

Experienced business investors, willing to invest substantial capital into an Australian Government Security for a fixed term, can apply under the Investor visa subclass. Applicants who secure sponsorship will apply under the State/Territory Sponsored Investor visa subclass.

4. Established Business in Australia Visa

Applicants who have already established a business in Australia may be eligible to migrate under the Established Business in Australia visa subclass. This is a permanent residency visa.

Permanent residency can be applied for once the applicant’s business has been operating in Australia for at least 2 years, or their investment has been retained for four years. Permanent residents have the right to live, work and study in Australia indefinitely.
