The Business Innovation and investment migration programme is designed to attract independent and successful business persons, investors and entrepreneurs who will successfully engage in business and investment in Australia. This has the benefit of the creation of employment, possibly exports, injection of foreign capital and growing economy.

This visa type has particular interest in owners of businesses and investors with a high level business and investment history. It isĀ  the intention that they will use their business and investment skills and available capital or assets to obtain a substantial ownership interest in a new or existing business in Australia and actively participate in that business in the day to day management or make and manage investments.


At the time of invitation to apply for the provisional visa it is a requirement that the applicant satisfies the minimum points score requirement for the business innovation and investment point test.
