Australia Residence by Investment

Australia has for long been considered an ideal place to live and a highly sought-after immigration destination. It started introducing immigrant investor programs back in 1992 and has since expanded its programs to cater to all types of business people. There are 3 distinct paths in the Australia Investor Stream.

Investor Stream

The Investor stream is the most affordable of the 3 options. It provides investors with a 4-year and 3-month residence permit. In the last few years, the processing times have increased due to backlog and are now estimated to take up to 20 months. Applicants are required to spend at least 2 years of those 4 years physical present in Australia. After having held the investment for 4 years, investors can apply for a permanent visa. Citizenship can be gained after 4 years of residence, which includes 12 months of permanent residence.
