Case Study

Which business visa?

What qualifies as a “business” when it comes to business visas? That was one of the key questions we had to answer in the case of Franco who ran a successful commercial property investment company in Europe. The migration regulations specifically exclude real estate investment from being eligible to be characterised as a business. We decided to pursue a business visa under the investor stream – as that avoided the issue altogether. But soon after we received the financial statements it was evident that work was required to ensure the financial statements were in a format that the Department of Immigration would accept. So we spent a number of weeks up front with the accountant ensuring all financial statements were re-drafted to meet international accounting standards and ensuring there was no confusion for the case officer in understanding how Franco met the criteria for grant.

The time we spent up front ensured that when the day came to lodge the state sponosrship application all our ducks were in a row – it was then a matter of going through the process with the state government and later the Immigration Department. The business visa was ultimately granted within a few months, a great result and now Franco is in Australia exploring his next investment move in Australia.
