Business Visas

Overview

There are a number of visa options available for business people. Business people may apply for a visa to conduct short business visits, establish or manage a new or existing business or invest in Australia.

A two stage processing structure was introduced into the Business Skills Program on 1 March 2003. 

Most Business Skills applicants seeking to come to Australia need firstly to apply for a temporary (provisional) visa.
 
They are eligible to apply for a permanent Business Skills visa once they have successfully operated a business or maintained their designated investment in Australia.
