We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Business and Investment Visa Change

What are The Changes for Business Innovation and Investment Program?

Significant Streams Changes

The new program will be reduced from nine streams to the below four streams:

  • Business Innovation
  • Entrepreneur
  • Investor
  • Significant Investor

Under this new regulation, Provisional visa holders in all four streams will be able to apply for permanent residence if they meet the requirements after three years, but the provisional visa will now be valid for five years, meaning they have additional time to meet the requirements. Not to mention, the Australian Government will also be discussing with industry to communicate any further changes to the Complying Investment Framework. Any adjustments to the framework will be disclose in the early half of the next year. 

Business Innovation Visas

One of the key changes of this programme will be impacting the Business Innovation and Significant Investor visa holders. Under this new adjustments, visa holders will also continue to be able to extend their provisional visas if within the required timeline, they do not met the business and residency thresholds. In addition, if Business Innovation Provisional Visa Holders are able to show reasonable commitment to continue managing a business that has been operating in Australia for the previous two years, then they may apply for a two-year extension.

The requirements for business innovation visa applicants will be expanded to ensure that the program draws migrants with demonstrated business expertise. In order to show their Business acumen, Business Innovation Visa applicants will be expected to maintain business and personal assets of $1.25 million (up from $800,000) and to have an annual turnover of $750,000 (up from $500,000) These new changes aims to maximise economic contribution of these high-value investors to get the best possible outcome for Australians.

Significant Investor Visas 

Not only Business Innovation Visa holders that will be impacted by these adjustments, Significant Investor visa holders will also be impacted. The government has allowed Significant Investor Visa holders to continue to be able to extend their provisional visas if they do not meet the business and residence thresholds in the required time frame. As well as applying for two, two-year extensions provided that they continue to make significant investments in enforcement.

Entrepreneur Visas 

Some visas will have simpler thresholds, such as Entrepreneur visa applicants whose current $200,000 funding threshold will be eliminated. Applicants would also need to be supported by a government of the state or region, however. This follows the successful Supporting Innovation in South Australia pilot program which will create additional opportunities for countries and territories to recruit foreign entrepreneurs.

BOOK CONSULTATION

When Will These Business and Investment Visa Changes Take Effect?

As of 1 July 2021, new applications will be closed for the Premium Investor, Significant Business History and Venture Capital Entrepreneur visas. Applications already lodged for these visas will still be processed. 

Why did the government make these changes?

As the requirements have not changed since 2012 when the program was first introduced, these changes are made to be aligned with Australia’s 2020-2021 migration program which focused on job creators, those with key skills and migrants who are going to add value for Australia’s future. Additionally, despite Australia’s threshold being greater than any other countries, this program has increasing demand which indicates that applicants have some potential and willingness to invest above the average threshold. Hence, these changes are one-way therefore to optimize the return to the economy of Australia.
