The Business Talent visa (subclass 132) is a permanent residence visa for business people who are nominated by an Australian state or territory government agency.

You can be in or outside Australia when you apply and when the visa is decided.

Subclass 132 Visa

The Business Talent visa (subclass 132) allows you to establish a new or develop an existing business in Australia.

This is a permanent residence visa. It lets you and any family members who have also been granted this visa:

  • stay in Australia indefinitely
  • work and study in Australia
  • enrol in  Medicare, Australia’s scheme for health-related care and expenses
  • apply for Australian citizenship (if you are eligible)
  • sponsor eligible relatives for permanent residence
  • travel to and from Australia for five years from the date the visa is granted (after that time, you will need a resident return visa or another visa to return to Australia).

Subclass 132 Application

To be able to apply for this visa, you must first submit an  Expression of Interest (EOI) and then be invited through  SkillSelect to apply.

Your expression of interest must specify:

  • which stream you intend to apply under
  • whether you are interested in doing business in just one or more Australian states and territories.

When you have submitted your expression of interest, a state or territory government could examine it and decide whether to nominate you to apply for the visa. State and territory authorities have their own criteria for deciding who to nominate. The authority might contact you before you are nominated to discuss business possibilities. In others, the authority will wait for you to contact it.
