Business Owners and Investors


If you’re interested in starting a business in Australia, expanding your business into the Australian market or investing, it’s possible to migrate to Australia as a business owner or investor.

If you are a business owner, you may be interested in the Business Innovation Visa stream and for those who want to invest, there are several investor visa options which vary depending on your intended level of investment in Australia.

Each of the below Business and Investor Visa Streams under the Business Innovation and Investment Temporary Visa (188) enable you to:

  • Bring family members into Australia with you as part of your visa application
  • Easily travel in and out of Australia for the duration of your visa
  • Transition to permanent residence by meeting the requirements for a Business Innovation and Investment Permanent Visa (888)
