AUSTRALIA INVESTOR STREAM
The Australia residence by investment program has been running since 1992. It’s no secret that the Australia Investor program has been a very popular immigration path for wealthy foreigners. The Investor program was complemented by the Significant Investor in 2012 and Premium Investor options in 2015. The program provides a temporary residence that can be turned into a permanent residence after 1 to 4 years depending on the investment option. After 4 years of living in Australia and 12 months of permanent residence, you can apply for naturalisation. The Australian passport is one of the world’s best, with visa-free access to Europe and the U.S.
