Business Migration

Skilled professionals wishing to establish a business in Australia may be eligible to migrate in a two stage process.

Firstly, the applicant purchases or establishes a business in Australia which sponsors him or her as an employee together with their dependent family members. This achieves temporary residence for the business owner and their dependent family members through Temporary Business Entry.

Secondly, following operation of the business by the applicant, the business may nominate the applicant’s position as a permanent appointment and the applicant and their dependent family members apply for Permanent Residence pursuant to the Employer Nomination Scheme.

 Business Migration is an economical, timely and efficient option for Business Owners and may be more preferable than Business Skills Migration.

 This two stage process is detailed below.

 A. Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) (Subclass 482 Visa Application)

For information about Temporary Business Entry.

B. Employer Nomination Application (Permanent Residence Subclass 186 Visa Application) 

 For information about Employer Nomination.
