Significant Investor visa programme statistics
The Significant Investor Visa (SIV) programme is a state or territory nominated pathway to provide for significant migrant investment into Australia under the Business Innovation and Investment visa programme.
Under the SIV, migrant investors are required to make an investment of at least AUD5million into complying investments for a period of at least four years on a provisional visa before being eligible to apply for a permanent visa. Complying investments include state or Territory government bonds, managed funds regulated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and/or direct investment into Australian companies not listed on a stock exchange where that company operates a qualifying business.
