Executive Legal's immigration law department explains migration requirements

Business Visas may be classified as Business Skills or Business Talent Visas. Business skills visas are provisional while business talent visas are migrant. Both require the applicant to sign a declaration stating that they agree to meet the requirements of their respective visa upon arrival in Australia. Working on this on your own is difficult, professional assistance from respected law firms like Executive Legal can help you lighten the load.

Here are some of the requirements if you have either a Business Skills or Business Talent Visa:

  • Notify the DIBP or the Department of Immigration and Border Protection about your residential address within six months after your initial entry in Australia.
  • Continuously inform the DIBP of any changes to your residential address. Updates must be done within 28 days of changing your location.
  • Business owners, State/Territory-sponsored business owners, senior executive visa holders and State/Territory-sponsored executive visa holders are required to comply to additional onshore requirements and obligations.

    Business Visa Holders

    Within the first 24 months after initial entry to Australia, Business Visa holders must become active and involved owners in their business. Their business must provide input into the economy of the country.
