Emigration Guides: A Quick Guide to Australian Business Migration

Finding the best Australian business migration visa option does not have to be confusing, in this article we look at the various Australian business visa options, how they are applicable to you, and the process and requirements needed to acquire one. As always we recommend seeking professional advice from a MARA approved Migration Agent before proceeding with any visa application and searching for relevant information and articles at border.gov.au. Not only does this make the entire business visa application process more straightforward, but it can also save a lot of time and expenses by getting your business visa application right first time, not to mention speeding up the entire process.

Types of Australian Business Migration Visas- State Nominated Visas

There are several types of Australian business migration visas available and we look at the various requirements and criteria of each one;

The first is the Business Innovation and Investment Visa, this visa is a two-part process that can lead to a permanent residency. Initially you will need to apply for a provisional visa (Subclass 188). The criteria for this visa is divided into four paths, choosing the most relevant to you. These are as follows;

  1. Entrepreneur – This is aimed at individuals who have agreed with a third party, funding of a minimum of two hundred thousand Australian Dollars. And for those who are going to develop a service or product that will be a commercially viable business within Australia.
  2. Significant Investor – Quite self-explanatory, simply an individual who are willing to invest 5 million Australian dollars over a period of four years to benefit Australia
  3. Business Innovation – Aimed at existing business owners who are willing to relocate their overseas business or to establish a new business in Australia.
  4. Business Investment – Individuals who are willing to invest in a business in Australia, this requirement is suitable for successful business owners who can invest 1.5 million Australian Dollars over a period of four years.

Applying for Permanent Residency Business Visa

After meeting the requirements of one of the four parts of the provisional Australian business migration visa, the second part is the permanent business visa, this is applicable to those who have hold the four-year provisional business visa (Subclass 188) and whose goal is a permanent Australian residency. Again, there are also multiple avenues of application for this visa and these are as follow;

  1. Significant Investor – Aimed at those who are willing to invest a minimum of five million Australian Dollars over a period of five years.
  2. Business Investment – Aimed at individuals who are willing to invest at least 1.5 million Australian Dollars over a period of four years and suitable for business owners and investors.
  3. Business Innovation – Again aimed at those who are happy to relocate their overseas business to Australia or are looking to establish a new Australian business venture.

This visa is valid for a total of five years and leading to permanent residency. Of course, as we always recommend, carry out thorough research before applying and seek the aid of a professional MARA approved Migration Agent who can help you along the way.

  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
    – Graeme and family, Australia

  • We have arrived in Brisbane safely, goods and all!! Been here since September and loving it so far. Thankfully our house was not damaged in anyway by the floods, although we have been involved in Volunteering to help clean up after the floods (that was an experience!). Thanks again.
    – Elaine, Kevin and Kim Lawrence, Brisbane, Australia
  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know. There are so many companies offering the same kind of service, it’s hard to know who to trust and we had OE recommended by a friend and I would recommend to anyone without a second thought.
    – Sam Whittam, New Zealand
  • Thank you so so much and everybody at OE for everything. We are over the moon! We are all in shock and there are tears! Thank you again.
    – Warren Baldwin-Jones, Canada
  • Thanks so much for all of your help and support with my application. Everyone there has been so responsive every time we’ve contacted you, it really does make a difference. I should refer our estate agent back in Edinburgh to you for some tips on customer communication! And we certainly would recommend to anyone thinking of making the move to contact the team at OE.
    – James Cooke, New Zealand
  • They explained each process of the application and kept us up-to-date on what was happening at each stage; telling us when we needed to be doing things and in what order – they made the whole process very straight forward.
