Business Skills Visas

Australia Business Skills Visa class encourages successful business owners, senior executives and investors to settle permanently in Australia and develop new or existing businesses.
Business owners, senior executives and investors can apply for a visa under the Business Skills category .

Under the two-stage arrangements, business migrants are granted a Business Skills (Provisional) visa for four years. During these four years and after establishing the requisite level of business or maintaining their eligible investment, are eligible to make an application for a Business Skills (Residence) visa.

A direct permanent residence category will still be available for high-calibre business migrants sponsored by State/Territory governments. This is known as the Business Talent visa.

The Business Skills program is divided into four categories:

Business Owner Category

For owners or part-owners of a business who would like to establish or participate in a business in Australia.

Senior Executive Category

For senior executive employees of major businesses (highest 3 levels of management); who would like to establish or participate in a business in Australia.

Investor Category

For investors or business people who are willing to invest in a business or an investment in Australia.

Business Talent Category

For high-calibre business people who have sponsorship from a State/Territory government and are prepared to participate in a qualifying business, maintaining a substantial ownership and management involvement.
