    Business Immigration

    Australia offers several visa options for individuals looking to immigrate for business purposes. Here are some of the main ones:

      1. Business Innovation and Investment Visa (Subclass 188/888): This visa is for individuals who want to own and manage a business in Australia, or to make a designated investment in an Australian state or territory. It has several streams including Business Innovation stream, Investor stream, Significant Investor stream, Premium Investor stream, Entrepreneur stream, and Business Innovation Extension stream.

      2.Business Talent (Permanent) Visa (Subclass 132): This visa is for high-caliber business owners or entrepreneurs who have a genuine and realistic commitment to invest in a new or existing business in Australia and to maintain ownership and management of that business. It has two streams: Significant Business History stream and Venture Capital Entrepreneur stream.

      3.Temporary Activity Visa (Subclass 408): While not specifically a business visa, the subclass 408 visa can be used by individuals who want to undertake specific activities in Australia on a temporary basis. This includes individuals coming to Australia to participate in specific events, projects, or activities related to their business or industry.

      4.Employer Sponsored Visas (Subclass 482/186/187): These visas allow Australian employers to sponsor skilled workers from overseas for positions they cannot fill locally. While not specifically for business owners, it can be a pathway to permanent residency for skilled workers sponsored by an Australian employer.

      5.Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189): This visa is for skilled workers who are not sponsored by an employer or family member or nominated by a state or territory government. While not strictly a business visa, skilled workers may use this pathway to eventually establish businesses in Australia.

      It’s important to note that each visa has its own eligibility criteria, application process, and requirements. Additionally, Australian immigration laws and policies may change over time, so it’s advisable to consult with a registered migration agent or the Australian Department of Home Affairs for the most up-to-date information.
