SIV - Significant Investor Visa - Subclass 188 C

This provisional visa is for people who invest at least AUD5 million in approved Australian investment funds for a minimum of four years. The investment must be made through an approved Investment Corporation in Australia and directed into investment categories set by the Australian government. After meeting all requirements, the visa holder may progress to the full permanent residence via the 888 visas.

This visa has very few strict requirements to meet, other than the minimum investment funds. There is no requirement as to how long you must have owned those funds. There's no age limit, no minimum level of education and no minimum English language requirement. If you have the funds, you can be confident of an acceptable return on that investment. This return is over the four years with the approved investment body you have selected.

Our Service

There are several approved Investment corporations in Australia, and each is fully registered and monitored to protect your investment. Dyson and Associates can assist you in arranging for the placement of your investment with the agency of your choice. We are familiar with the background and performance of these organisations. This visa is also subject to a nomination from a State or Territory agency, and we would discuss with you as to where you would prefer to settle once you have your visa.

At the end of the four years, we would prepare and lodge the 888 permanent residence visa application and follow through for a successful outcome.

We remind you that this visa application is much easier to secure, providing you have the required investment funds.

If you do have an interest in this visa, or would like more information, please register your interest below, and we will get back to you.
