Business and investor visas are designed to encourage overseas investment and business activity in Australia. These visas are available to individuals who are willing to make a significant financial investment in Australia or are seeking to start or run a business in the country.

There are several types of business and investor visas available, including the Business Talent (Permanent) Visa, Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) Visa, and the Investor Retirement Visa.

To be eligible for a business or investor visa, applicants must meet certain requirements, including having a successful business career or experience in investment management, meeting the minimum net worth and investment requirements, and demonstrating a genuine commitment to investing in or running a business in Australia.

Applicants must also meet health and character requirements and be able to demonstrate sufficient proficiency in the English language.

Business and investor visas can provide a pathway to permanent residency and citizenship in Australia, as well as offering numerous benefits, including access to high-quality education, healthcare, and lifestyle opportunities.
