Migration and visas

The Victorian Government recognises the value that international business people bring to the State in terms of a diversity of skills, potential to expand local businesses, stimulation of export activity, and maximising employment opportunities for Victorians.

Knowing which visa to apply for depends on a variety of factors including previous business experience, the type of business activity to be undertaken and existing skills.

All international business people are required to obtain a visa to enter Australia, issued by the Commonwealth Government Department of Home Affairs (DHA).

For business people, these range from business visit visas, designed for those who want to visit for short-term business purposes, through to a variety of provisional and permanent residency visas.

We are keen to assist business people coming to Victoria with information to secure the most appropriate visa for their purposes.

For further information about applying for a business visa to come to Victoria, contact the Victorian Government Skilled and Business Migration Unit.
