Important points

The Business Innovation and Investment Visa program encourages successful businesspeople and investors to establish a business or investment in Australia.

Most of the Business Skills visas require for you to be granted a provisional visa for a period of four years. The provisional visa allows you to live in Australia and offers a pathway to Australian permanent residency.

As the holder of the provisional visa, it is necessary to meet requirements such as successfully operating the business or maintaining the required capital investment, before you can apply for permanent residency.
