Business Visa Australia


The Business Visa is designed to attract business people to Australia and allow them to use their specialised skills to establish new businesses or acquire ownership or part ownership of existing businesses. The program encourages successful business people to settle permanently in Australia in order to develop business opportunities.

Business Migrants come to Australia under the Skilled Migrants Stream, but there are so many special provisions that the Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs (DIMIA), puts them in the separate category of Business Skills Migration.

Since March 2003 people coming to Australia under the business migrants category are being granted a Business Skills (Provisional) Visa, which is valid for four years. You will be able to make an application for permanent residency under this visa category once you establish the requisite level of business activity or maintain your investment. This arrangement allows prospective business migrants the opportunity to trial their business skills in Australia before making a permanent decision.

Australian Government also makes temporary residence very accessible to those who fall into this category so that they may visit Australia to personally investigate business opportunities.

There are 4 categories of the Business Skills Program:

1.) Business Owner
For successful owners or part-owners of a business with a legitimate interest in establishing and managing a business in Australia.

2.) Senior Executive
For successful senior executives of major businesses who demonstrate a genuine commitment to participating, as a substantial owner, in managing a new or existing business in Australia.

3.) Investment
For successful business investors with a genuine commitment to maintain business or investment activity in Australia after the designated investment matures.

4.) Established Business Owner
For successful owners or part owners of one or more businesses already established in Australia, seeking to change their residency status from temporary to permanent

There are also two categories for business people who are already linked to Australian businesses and are in Australia on Temporary Visas.

Established Business in Australia (EBA)
For people temporarily in Australia who are owners or part owners of a business;

Regional Established Business in Australia (REBA)
For people temporarily in Australia who are owners or part owners of a business in a designated area of Australia.

There is also a direct permanent residence category that is available for high-calibre business migrants sponsored by State/Territory governments. This is known as the Business Talent Visa .
