Australia

Country overview

Located in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia is more than a country, it’s more or less a continent in itself. As a former British colony, Australia like the UK is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy. Largely supported by the service sector, the country boasts one of the economies in the world and their system itself can be termed as a knowledge-based economy with IT playing a key role. Australia plays a key role in most major international organizations including the Commonwealth, United Nations, G20, WTO, and the Pacific Community, to name a few.

About Australian Residency by Investment Program

The Australian Business and Investment Visa program (Business Innovation 188) was setup by the government to attract investments from high-net-worth foreign nationals. Aspiring applicants can choose to make their investment three available streams – Business Innovation Stream, Investor Stream, and Significant Investor Stream. While the programs do not guarantee the applicant a permanent residence permit from the country, the temporary visas do provide applicants with an opportunity to acquire PR from the country after a period 3 years, if they fulfill a certain set of residence and investment criterions. The visas acquired through this program has a validity of five years.

It is to be noted that all income that you earn from the investment that you made in Australia is subject to taxation under the Australian taxation law. The investor must have a genuine and realistic commitment to continue their business and investment activity in the country after the conclusion of their provisional visa. Another strict criterion that all investors must follow is that – the investor by himself or the investor and his/her spouse should have a combined net worth of more than AUD15 million, proofs of which will need to be submitted upon request. The applicant along with his/her dependent should also have a clear track record in terms of business or investment activities. Lastly, the investor or his family members above age of 18 should agree to the condition that they will not bring any legal action against the Commonwealth for any loss incurred as a result of their investment.
