Our solutions are cost effective, time efficient and less restrictive for our clients. For more information contact, Michelle Firth, Principal Migration Agent Perth on +61 (0)8 9203 5194 or e-mail.
Australia’s Business Innovation and Investment Programme encourages successful business people to settle in Australia and use their proven skills to develop business activity in Australia.
The Business Innovation and Investment Programme is a nominated programme which is made up of three subclasses:
- Business Talent (Permanent) visa (subclass 132)
- Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) visa (subclass 188)
- Business Innovation and Investment (Permanent) visa (subclass 888).
Most business innovation and investment migrants enter Australia on a provisional visa for a minimum of four years and after satisfactory evidence of a specified level of business or investment activity can apply for permanent residence. Alternatively business migrants can apply for a business talent visa to get direct permanent residence if they have high level business skills or have obtained funding from an Australian venture capital firm.
Australia is actively encouraging business migrants to set up businesses in regional, rural or low growth areas of Australia. The Business Innovation and Investment Programme enables states and territories to attract and nominate the kinds of business people they are seeking to help in the economic development of their regions.
Business owners should speak to our migration agent Perth or migration agent Sydney before proceeding with any business visa application.
