business migration to australia 850x300

The team at QUEST can help you make your move to Australia.

Australia is a great place to do business and is the third most popular country for South Africans to immigrate.  Immigrants wanting to start a business or invest in Australia can do so with the right visa.

All business migrants to Australia need to meet certain selection criteria including:

(i) Potential Migrants having operated their own business in their country of origin, or at least have held senior management positions; and

(ii) A minimum investment of $500,000 is made into an Australian business. State governments do offer sponsored visa programs which effectively halve this investment commitment to $250,000, with the condition that applicants must settle and operate a business in the sponsoring state. This sponsorship program suits smaller business business sales within Regional Australia.
