Australia

A vast country with varied climates, Australia is considered as a continent masquerading as a country. It is one the largest countries in the world and is extremely rich in natural resources. A highly developed country, Australia has a very high standard of living and four Australian cities led by Melbourne ranked at No. 1 figure among the ten best cities to live in the world (The Telegraph, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/property/pictures/9477990/The-worlds-10-best-cities-to-live-in.html?frame=2311083).

In recent years to promote investment in the country, Australia has started a Residency by Investment program which can open the pathway for future permanent visa or citizenship in the country. Although Australia has a large number of visa types, the four most prominent types which are included in the program are:

  • The Business Innovation stream for individuals wishing to promote their new or existing business in Australia and nominated by State or Territorial governments. Individuals must be renowned in the field of business and make a significant contribution to the economy.
  • The Investor stream option (with nomination by the State or Territorial Government) for individuals who contribute a minimum sum of AUD 1.5 million into an Australian territory to maintain compliant investment and business activity.
  • The Significant investor stream option (with nomination by the State or Territorial Government or Austrade) for Individuals who contribute a sum of AUD 5 million into the Australian territory for promoting compliant business or investment.
  • The Premium Investor Stream Option (with nomination by the State or Territorial Government or Austrade) for individuals who contribute a sum of AUD 15 million into compliant premium investments.
