    Country overview

    Australia, located in the Southern Hemisphere, is more than a country and seems like a continent. It is a former British Colony, and like the United Kingdom, the land Down Under has a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy.

    Australia is a stable and culturally diverse nation boasting one of the strongest-performing economies in the world. The service sector primarily supports the economy. It offers many immigration programs like the Australian Residence by Investment programe to attract foreign investment and further boost the economy.

    Australia is an essential nation among prominent international organisations, including the United Nations, Commonwealth, G20, WTO, and the Pacific Community. Australian people are friendly, positive, resourceful and realistic towards strangers. Its system can be termed a knowledge-based economy, with IT playing a pivotal role. The core values based on equality, respect, and freedom are central to the success of this vibrant nation and lay the base for Australia’s success, social cohesion, and a shared future to which everyone belongs.

    Australia in Numbers

    Australia has unique landscapes, natural wonders, and rich ancient culture. It is the sixth-largest country in land and the only country to span a whole continent. Although more than 85% of Australia is uninhabited, it is one of the most heavily urbanised countries in the world.

    Another interesting fact is that the number of sheep outnumbers humans by a ratio of 3:1 in the country. It houses over 25 million people from various cultural, religious, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds.

    Indigenous people in Australia have lived on and managed the land Down Under for over 60,000 years.

    Australia has always welcomed immigrants and has many programs, including the Australian Residence by Investment program. Over 30 per cent of Australian residents were born overseas. English is the national language, but more than 300 languages are still spoken in Australian homes. This diversity of influences generates a cultural environment in Australia that is lively, energised, innovative and outward-looking.

    About Australian Residency by Investment Program

    The Australian Business and Investment Visa program subclass 188, also known as Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) visa 188) was set up by the government to invite investments from high-net-worth foreign nationals. Subclass 188 visa allows individuals to create and manage a business in Australia, perform Investment and business activity in Australia or undertake an entrepreneurial activity in Australia. The main reason behind the program is to bring significant economic benefits to the country. An engaging business plan demonstrating the viability and the benefits of the applicant’s proposed business is a vital asset when included with the application.

    To be eligible for Australia Investment by Residence program, the applicant has to express interest (EOI) in specific SkillSelect in-demand in the region. The applicant gets nominated by a State or Territorial government agency or Austrade and receives an invitation to apply for the visa.

    Applicants can invest in three available streams: Business Innovation Stream, Investor Stream, and Significant Investor Stream. These temporary visas offer applicants an opportunity to acquire Australian Permanent Residence from the country after three years if they fulfil specific residence and investment criteria. The visas obtained through this program have a validity of five years.
