Significant Investor Visa (SIV)

Australia introduced the new Significant Investor Visa (SIV) on 24 November 2012. The aim of this new visa is to attract migrants with a successful history of business and investment.

Interested applicants will need to submit an "Expression of Interest" and receive an invitation to apply for migration. Kah Lawyers will prepare the Expression of Interest and subsequent visa application, giving you the best prospects of success amongst the pool of investors applying.

The SIV is

  • Not points tested
  • Does not have a language requirement
  • Has no upper age limit

The Investor must:

  • Invest at least $5 million Australian Dollars in a "complying Investment" which includes State/Territory Government Bonds, ASIC regulated managed funds which meet the "Qualifying business" test or direct investment into Australia proprietary companies;
  • Live in Australia for 160 days over 4 years;

Asic regulated managed funds

The investment must be a management investment scheme defined in the Corporations Act 2001 and regulated by the ASIC.

The investment is limited to categories specified by the Minister in a legislative instrument.

These categories include:

  • Infrastructure projects in Australia;
  • Cash held by Australian deposit taking institutions;
  • Bonds issued by the Commonwealth or a State or Territory government;
  • Bonds, equity, hybrids or other corporate debt in companies and trusts listed on an Australian Stock Exchange;
  • Bonds or term deposits issued by Australian financial institutions;
  • Real estate in Australia (via an ASIC regulated managed fund) or
  • Australian Agribusiness.

The Significant Investor Visa is a temporary 4 year visa. A Significant Investor can apply for a permanent visa after holding the temporary visa for 4 years.

Kah Lawyers is assisting Investors who would like to submit an Expression of Interest. We can meet with you in Sydney CBD or our Parramatta office. We also provide skype or telephone conference advice and have interpreters available.
