Business Visas

Australia is keen on attracting people who have a proven record in business investment or have the experience and skills to establish a business. The Business Skills Visa category – all its subclasses – caters to people with different levels of business involvement. It caters to people who want to attend a conference, conduct business with an Australia-based organisation, make a reconnaissance business visit, start a new enterprise or invest in an existing one.

Use our overview to familiarise yourself with the major business visa categories and their key requirements.

Note: All requirements are not listed here. Our aim is to give you an idea of the classification and top-level requisites of business visas.

For a quick assessment of the most suitable category and a checklist of what you will need to apply for a Business Skills Visa, contact us.

Business visas can be short-term, provisional or permanent. You can get a short-term or temporary business visa with a pathway to an independent permanent residence visa or a state/territory sponsored permanent residence. You need to ensure that your business proposal is not restricted by Australian legislation, and that all registration and licensing requirements are met.

Note: Acting, musical performances or commercial film making do not fall into the definition of ‘business’ in the context of this visa.
