can I buy a business in oz then gain a visa through that?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This might sound a daft question but is it possible for me to buy an existing business in Australia and gain a visa to suit this option? I own a business in the UK but I don't think I meet the turnover criteria to apply for a business visa. Thanks

check the rules on immi website for existing business visa. you have to prove day to day management. They have largely removed this as an option if you are overseas. Visa numbers are 845/846.

 

Agree that exchange rates have made it harder for business visas.


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

I live in the UK now but I have seen a couple of businesses that I am involved in for sale in Australia. So wondered about this as an option otherwise I will have to hope for a 457 visa which is proving difficult finding a sponsor/job offer
