Important Announcement - Government of Western Australia

Please note that the Significant Investor Visa 188 nominations will be suspended from 24 April 2015 and will not reopen until 1 July 2015. Applicants will be required to be nominated by 24 April 2015 to be assessed under the current criteria.


The Government of Western Australia recognises and values the positive economic and social contribution that migrants have made and continue to make to the State.

Western Australia is currently experiencing strong and sustained economic growth. Driven largely by an expanding resources sector, this is creating many exciting opportunities across the State. Added to this is an enviable lifestyle, excellent education, cultural and sporting facilities and much more. We invite you and your family to come share our future.

If you have a successful background in owning or managing a business or investments, and you would like to engage in business or investment activity in Western Australia, you may qualify for the Business Migration Program.

The majority of business people will first enter Western Australia on a four year Provisional Business Visa. After successfully managing a business or investment here, you may be eligible to apply for a Permanent Business Visa.

To help assess your eligibility for a Business Visa, please read the criteria on this website.

Prospective business migrants are encouraged to go to the SkillSelect website and conduct a self-assessment against the visa categories. Department of Immigration and Border Protection is responsible for the assessment and issue of all Australian visas.

For more detailed information regarding the various Federal migration programs, you may also wish to visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
