Business Owner Visa Subclass 890

Subclass 890 visa in Australia is better known as a business owner visa. This visa category is structured for those eligible business owners or entrepreneurs who wish to permanently continue their activity in the Country. This is a second stage visa. Hence the applicant for the subclass 890 migration access must hold a qualifying visa as per the immigration processing conditions. Subclass 890 business owner visa and Subclass 892 state nominated business owner visa are designed to attract entrepreneurs or business owners to enhance the country’s economic development.

Why apply for a Subclass 890 Visa

Subclass 890 visa is a permanent permit to the Country. This visa allows it holders to-

  • Stay and work in the nation for an indefinite period.
  • Continue to own and maintain a business in the country.
  • Study in the country in their field of interest.
  • Travel to and from from the Country for five years.
  • Enrol in the medical health care scheme of the Government
  • Apply for citizenship (if eligible).
  • Sponsor members of the family unit to come to the country.

A permanent visa possessor enjoys almost similar entitlements as the citizen, with a few differences. However, the visa conditions need to be followed by the holder all the time.
