No Initial Job Creation Targets

Startup Entrepreneur Visa For Ireland


Australia is a steady, democratic and ethnically diverse nation with an extremely skilled labor force and one of the strongest performing economies in the world. With outstanding landscapes and a rich ancient culture, Australia is a land like no other. It is the earth’s sixth-largest country in land area and is the only nation to govern an entire continent.

Australia encourages successful and talented business people to own or invest in a business in Australia and benefit from the vast opportunities in the country. The Australian Business Innovation & Investment Stream (Provisional) visa (subclass 188) facilitates the same. This is a temporary business skills visa that supports successful business people to start a new or own existing business in Australia. This visa is valid for a period of 4 years and it allows the eligible visa holders to apply for permanent residence if the requirement of their provisional visa for at least 2 years is fulfilled.
