Business Immigration

Owning a business or investing in Australia can provide highly skilled individuals with the opportunity to live and work in the country. With the Business Skills program, the Australian government aims to encourage entrepreneurialism and innovation and provide a clear pathway to permanent residence

There are two possible pathways for business skills entry into Australia – the direct entry Business Talent (Migrant) visa and the Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) visa – and QMP is able to assist you with both.

Our dedicated team can also assist you with any application for Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) approval for the purchase of any real estate or business investment within Australia.
