What to Know About Australian Business Long Stay Visa?

The business migration programme aims to attract business professionals who are considering migrating to Australia from Singapore. If you are looking to operate a new or existing business in Victoria or any other part of Australia, a successful business long stay visa application is a must.

A successful business long stay visa application allows you to operate a new or existing business in Australia.

Basic Requirements

To qualify:
  • You must be able to demonstrate that you have had a successful business career.
  • You have a genuine and realistic commitment to the management of a new or existing business/investment that will benefit Australia.
  • You have not been involved in unacceptable business or investment activities.

In addition, business migration applicants must also meet other requirements such as language, age and assets assessments.

Subclass 132: Permanent (Business Talent)

Similar to the permanent work visa, the business innovation and investment visa is a 4-year provisional visa that only accepts applicants who are under 55 years of age and nominated by a state or territory government. However, applicants must also meet the pass mark in the innovation points test.
