Australia Business Visas
Several Australian business visas are available, with differing requirements and benefits.
State or territory sponsored business visas are intended for successful investors or businesspeople who are sponsored by a state or territorial government body.
Investor visas are intended for investors and business people who are not sponsored. They must show more evidence of their business experience and net worth.
Business owner visas are for business owners intending to bring a new or existing business to Australia. They must show more proof of a realistic and well-funded plan to begin a specific business in Australia to qualify.
