Getting the right immigration advice from the beginning is essential to establish yourself legally in Australia. Whether you’re looking to set up an office, migrate as a business owner or simply looking to purchase a business in Australia, it is important that you get off to the right start.
As early as possible it is important that you have a workable strategy to ensure that you can focus on meeting your business goals. If you are applying for the Subclass 188 Visa under the Business Innovation or Investor Stream you must score at least 65 in the Business Innovation Points Test Criteria (not applicable to Significant Investor Stream).
There are a few Australian Business Migration visas that one can obtain for themselves or their employees:
A 4-year provisional visa available to business owners and investors.
A 4-year provisional visa for investors who make $5 million in investments in Australia.
A 3-month or less visa for the purpose of short-stay which includes attending business meetings or exploring business opportunities.
A visa for people with an overall successful business career as a business owner or those with Venture Capital funding in Australia or have maintained an investment in bonds.
This visa is the completion of the Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) Subclass 188 Visa; the requirement of which is for applicants to have established business operations in Australia or to have maintained an investment in bonds.
