On 24 November, 2012 the Department of Immigration and Border Protection introduced the Significant Investor Visa which is a new visa stream within the 188 Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) visa. Please refer to the Significant Investor Visa page for detailed information on this new visa stream.

Please note that on 1 July, 2012 the Department of Immigration and Border Protection introduced the new Business Innovation and Investment Program, replacing the previous Business Skills Program. All business migrants must now be nominated by a State or Territory in order to lodge a business visa. The Business Innovation and Investment Program is designed to increase entrepreneurial talent and diversify business expertise in Australia.

The new Business Innovation and Investment Program comprises three visa subclasses:

  • 132 Business Talent Visa (Permanent)
  • 188 Business Innovation and Investment Visa (Provisional)
  • 888 Business Innovation and Investment Visa (Permanent)

Within the 132 Business Talent Visa category, applicants may apply under the Significant Business History Stream or Venture Capital Entrepreneur Stream.

Within the 188 Business Innovation and Investment Visa category, applicants may apply under the Significant Investor Stream, Business Innovation Stream or Investor Stream.

Applicants holding the 188 Business Innovation visa can apply for permanent residency via the 888 Business Innovation Stream, whereas applicants holding the 188 Investor visa can apply for Permanent Residency via the 888 Investor Stream. Details of Permanent Residency under the 888 Significant Investor Stream are still to come.

The Government of Western Australia recognises and values the positive economic and social contribution that migrants have made and continue to make to the State.

Western Australia is currently experiencing strong and sustained economic growth. Driven largely by an expanding resources sector, this is creating many exciting opportunities across the State. Added to this is an enviable lifestyle, excellent education, cultural and sporting facilities and much more. We invite you and your family to come share our future.

If you have a successful background in owning or managing a business or investments, and you would like to engage in business or investment activity in Western Australia, you may qualify for the Business Migration Program.

The majority of business people will first enter Western Australia on a four year Provisional Business Visa. After successfully managing a business or investment here, you may be eligible to apply for a Permanent Business Visa.

To help assess your eligibility for a Business Visa, please read the criteria on this website.

Prospective business migrants are encouraged to go to the SkillSelect website and conduct a self-assessment against the visa categories. Department of Immigration and Border Protection is responsible for the assessment and issue of all Australian visas.
