Qualifying shareholdings

Australia expects those approved Venture Capital firms to select the businesses they are willing to invest in. 

The Australian immigration Department is satisfied any business capable of standing up to the scrutiny of professional investors, resulting in an investment over AUD 1 million, has the potential to bring benefits to the economy and to the local market.

That is why PR is approved immediately, as opposed to those entrepreneurs who do not have Venture Capital investors and must complete a 4-year probationary period before PR is possible.
