To be eligible for one of the provisional business visas, applicants must have:
a successful business or investment career and,
a genuine commitment to engage in business activities in Australia.
To be eligible, applicants must satisfy certain basic criteria, but there is no points test. The entry threshold for age, English language ability, business turnover or assets is lower for applicants who secure sponsorship from an Australian State or Territory Government. Sponsored applicants receive priority processing.
There are four (4) main visa subclasses under the Business Skills Program:
1. Business Owner Visa
Applicants based overseas who currently own and manage a business, can apply under the Business Owner visa subclass. Applicants who secure sponsorship will apply under the State/Territory Sponsored Business Owner visa subclass.

4. Established Business in Australia Visa
