Business Visa


Starting or continuing a business in Australia requires an appropriate visa. The Australian Business Visa permits you to stay and work indefinitely while allowing multiple entries. There are various types of business visas, each tailored to specific needs. Initially, new business owners must apply for a provisional visa, which can be upgraded to permanent residency. Experienced business owners may directly apply for a visa with permanent residency.

Key Requirements

Regardless of the visa type, submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) is essential. In certain cases, sponsorship from an Australian state or territory is necessary. The business visa is categorized based on the applicant’s profile: investor, business owner, senior executive, or experienced business person.

Business Visa Categories

  1. Business Owner Visa (Subclass 890):
    • Suitable for those wanting to start or manage a business.
    • Allows multiple entries for five years.
    • Requires proof of business experience and a previous provisional visa.
