Business Visas

Australian Business Visa Options & Categories of Australian Business Skills visas

Australian Immigration Business skills visas

Start by looking at your background:

  • If you were a business owner for at least the last 3-4 years, look at the Business Owner category
  • If you were a senior executive of a large corporation for the last 3-4 years, then the senior executive categories must be considered
  • If you have accumulated substantial funds and investments (your own money) over the last 4 - 5 years, then consider the Investor visa options
  • If you were a business owner of a substantial business, then the Business talent visa may be the best option for you

In all cases, except for the business talent visa, you first obtain a temporary residence visa, followed by permanent residence after meeting your onshore obligations.
