Premium Investor Visa - Subclass 188 D

This provisional visa is for people who are nominated by the CEO of Austrade (an Australian government agency) and who invest at least AUD15 million in approved Australian investments and philanthropic contributions. This visa also provides for transition to full permanent residence after four years by way of visa subclass 888.

Applicants need to have Functional (low level) English only, and there is no age limit.

The Premium Investor Visa (PIV) focuses on attracting a small number of highly talented and entrepreneurial individuals to Australia. Such people contribute skills and talents into areas which deliver long-term economic benefit to the country.

Our Service

We can review your business and entrepreneurial background and investment funds available for subsequent activities in Australia. We would seek to understand what plans you may have once your visa is approved and use this information to prepare and submit a nomination application to the Austrade organisation.

Once your nomination is approved, an invitation to apply for a visa is received. We complete and submit your visa application and follow through for a successful outcome. You now have a four-year period in which you must invest in entrepreneurial activities and meet the requirements for an 888 permanent residence visa.

We would monitor and guide you in these steps to ensure you are likely to be approved for permanent residence.

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.
