From 1 July 2012, most business people will now need to apply through DIAC's SkillSelect website. Make a booking with us to see how these changes will affect your business visa options.
We can assist you in making the following categories of application:
For business people to visit Australia for business purposes, for example, to attend
a conference or training session, to conduct business with an Australia-based organization,
to conduct business negotiations or for an exploratory business visit.
Business Development - Provisional
For business people to establish a business in Australia, manage a new or existing
business or invest in Australia. All except the Investor Retirement visa offer a
pathway to permanent residence.
Business Development - Permanent
For people who have established the required level of business in Australia while
holding a provisional visa. A direct permanent residence visa is also available
for high-calibre business people.
Business Development Sponsorship
If an Australian State or Territory government business agency wants to encourage
a particular business or business person to Australia, it can offer to sponsor a
visa applicant. You may obtain State or Territory sponsorship in
the Business Owner, Senior Executive and Investor categories.
You must obtain sponsorship in the Business Talent and Regional
Established Business in Australia (REBA) categories. State and Territory governments
have their own criteria for deciding whom they will sponsor. The State or Territory
government business development agency can provide information on sponsorship. We
can assist in helping you prepare your application to the relevant State or Territory
Government for sponsorship.
