The Australian Business Visa Policy Basics

The Australian Business Visa is bursting with possibilities!
It is perfect for those entrepreneurs, investors, executives and business people who want to start a new business or buy or invest in an existing business in Australia. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) is responsible for allocating and approving all Business Visas. For those pursuing the Business Visa there are two pathways to follow:
a. As a Provisional Visa holder. As a Provisional Visa holder, you will be eligible for a Permanent Business Visa upon establishing a business in Australia.
b. As a Permanent Visa holder. A State or Territory Government sponsorship is required for high calibre applicants to obtain a Permanent Business Visa.

However, once you are successful, you are then eligible to apply for the Permanent Visa (Subclass 888). With this Visa, you can stay indefinitely in Australia, and continue your business.
