Australia's migration program encourages successful business people to settle in Australia and develop new or existing businesses.
Under the two-stage arrangements introduced on 1 March 2003, business migrants are granted a Business Skills (Provisional) visa for four years. After establishing the requisite level of business required by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) or maintaining their eligible investment, visa holders can make an application for a Business Skills (Residence) visa.

Short-Stay Instant Travel Visas
If you are planning a holiday visit or a short business trip to Australia, you will need to apply for either a visa or an ETA (Electronic Travel Authority). An ETA will let you spend up to three months in Australia.
If you are NOT on the ETA Eligible Country list, or wish to take a trip to Australia for longer than 3 months, the Australian e600 Visitor Visa (subclass 600) allows travelers to stay in Australia for up to 12 months, or a shorter period, depending on the purpose of the visit and personal circumstances; and allows single or multiple entries to Australia.
