Australian Business Visitor Visa

Australian Business Visitor Visa

An Australian Business Visitor visa is required for people who wish to visit the country for business purposes.

Business visitor activities include:

  • making general business or employment enquiries
  • investigating, negotiating, signing or reviewing a business contract
  • activities carried out as part of an official government-to-government visit
  • participating in conferences, trade fairs or seminars, provided you are not being paid by the organisers for your participation.

Business travelers from ETA eligible countries can obtain an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). An ETA is valid for 12 months. You can enter and stay in Australia for up to three months at a time.

Business travelers from EVV eligible countries can obtain an E Visitor Visa (EVV). You can stay in Australia for up to three months for each visit within the 12 months from the date your EVV is granted.

Business visitors from non-ETA eligible countries and non-EVV eligible countries are required to submit a paper-based visa application for a Visitor Visa (subclass 600). The visa may be valid for different periods including up to three (3), six (6) or twelve (12) months. In some cases, the embassy may only allow a shorter stay period of one month and may also impose a restrictive condition, which may prevent the holder from applying for further visas from within Australia.

Business owners, investors or executives who want to migrate to Australia should consider applying for one of the Australian Business Visas.
