An individual may apply for this 888 permanent visa if they own and have managed a business in Australia for the entire period of holding their SC188. This can be achieved through holding the 188 provisional visa for either four years in the Investor stream or two years in the Business Innovation stream. Additional specific criteria must be met.
If a person has a designated investment in a state or territory, the Investor Visa stream is the ideal option. This allows owners and investors to maintain business activities within Australia following investment growth. Certain criteria relating to business activities are assessed. The Significant Investor stream is recommended for people who are planning to invest at least AUD5 million into complying investments. This also allows owners and investors to maintain activities within Australian state or territory following investment growth.
