Business Innovation and Investment Visas
There are different types of visas that Australia offers for business visa candidates, which together make up the Australian business skills migration program. In all cases these Australian visa categories may be issued as a state or territory sponsored visa and involve a two stage process.
Initially, Australian immigration will grant Business Visas for a period of four years, after which, providing that the requirements of the specific business visa are fulfilled, a candidate may apply for a business skills (residence) visa, otherwise known as permanent residence.
Applying for an Australian business visa through a state or territory sponsorship reduces some of the qualification requirements; however, candidates must first secure sponsorship from the State or Territory to which they intend to immigrate.
