South Australia’s Business Innovation and Investment Program is open
South Australia’s Business Innovation and Investment Program (BIIP) is open for the 2022-23 program year.
The Business Migration program is designed to attract high-quality business owners, investors and entrepreneurs who can create genuine and sustainable economic opportunities in South Australia that’ll benefit the state’s economy, local businesses and workforce.
Four visa streams under the Subclass 188 visa
The Business Migration program has four visa streams available for nomination under the Business Innovation and Investment visa (Subclass 188):
- Business Innovation Stream (188A)
- Investor Stream (188B)
- Significant Investor Stream (188C)
- Entrepreneur Stream (188E)
South Australia has received an interim allocation of only 70 nomination places, so competition is stiff.
It is no surprise that applicants for the Business Innovation Stream (188A) must submit an Intention to Apply (ITA) for consideration.
Interim opening for the Tasmanian Skilled Migration State Nomination Program to Gold and Green pass candidates
The 2022-23 Tasmanian Skilled Migration State Nomination Program is opening in stages.
In this stage, candidates who meet the minimum requirements of the Subclass 190 or Subclass 491 visa and have at least one gold or green priority attribute can register their interest in nomination by Migration Tasmania.
Eligible candidates must receive an invitation from Migration Tasmania before applying for nomination, and candidates who are nominated will be able to apply for a work visa.
Migration Tasmania has said it’ll release information about the next interim stage soon.
