Hi Guys

As a registered migration agent 1804671, it’s very important that business visa applicants potentially have four or five streams of this visa  that could be considered. Most applications are for a stream involving buying or establishing a business and the other is investing $1.5m for four years. For both of these streams, there are MANY requirements to satisfy the eligibility criteria. It is also important to understand that business visas are a two step process, the first being a State Government nomination. Now, here’s the thing. While the Federal Government sets down the eligibility criteria for the visa, each state Government is able to set its own requirements which may be HIGHER than that stipulated on the home affairs website. For example some States specifically exclude certain businesses such as coffee shops, corner stores, entry level franchises and wine export businesses. Some require you employ a minimum number of people in the business and some even require the level of investment is significantly higher than the minimum specified on the DHA website. Business plans are also often required as is evidence that you have put some serious thought and planning in prior to making your application. I hope this helps

Could you please refer to our business rules and create a signature if you're an agent.


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows
