Business Investor Stream Visa

If you are a successful business owner abroad and are looking to invest in a new or existing business in Australia, then the Business Investor Stream is the ideal visa for you.

The Business Investor Stream is a temporary business visa that is valid for 4 years. If you meet certain requirements of your provisional visa after the first 2 years, then you may be able to apply for permanent residence in Australia.

Basic Requirements

  • must be under 45 years of age
  • must be able to demonstrate a successful history of business investment
  • must have enough funds and assets to settle in Australia
  • must acquire at least 65 points on the innovation points test

You must also submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). Before you are able to apply for the Business Investor Stream, you must make a significant, designated investment in Australia and it must be held for 4 years. Your previous business career must demonstrate a successful history of investment or business activity in a qualifying business or investment.

Once your Business Innovation Stream Visa has been granted, you are able to invest in a business in Australia. Any family members that you included in your application (such as a partner and/or dependent children) are permitted to live, work and study in Australia.

When applying for permanent residence, you may require sponsorship from State or Territory Government.
