If you want to undertake business activities in Australia, you may be eligible for the visitor visa under the Business Visitor Stream. This visa enables you to undertake activities including:
Attending meetings, conferences and negotiations
Investigating personal investment or job opportunities
Representing a foreign government on official business
Representing an overseas entity in negotiations and investigations of business opportunities in Australia.
You cannot work for or provide services to a business or organisation in Australia or sell goods or services to the public under this visa category. There are various visa categories under this arrangement – the right pathway for you depends on your country of origin and exactly what you want to do in Australia. Alternatively, you may need to stay in Australia to work under a temporary work visa. The Temporary Work (Short Stay Activity) visa will allow you to come to Australia temporarily for work purposes. You will also be able to bring your family with you to Australia if you include them in your work visa application.
This temporary work visa specifically relates to short-term, highly specialised, non-ongoing work at the invitation of an Australian organisation. You must be outside of Australia when you apply and when the visa granted.
Business Talent and Business Investment Visas
These visas vary and have temporary and permanent categories. Most are reserved for high calibre business owners and entrepreneurs that requires sponsorship from a state or territory of Australia.
Applicants may be inside or outside of Australia at the time of visa application and visa grant and may require an expression of interest as the first stage of the process. We can assist you with this process and start by providing an analysis of your situation to recommend the best possible pathway depending upon your skills, business history, age, and lifestyle.
