Today, Immigration by investment has become the fastest-growing area of Australian emigration law, as it is now the preferred route for those not willing or able to emigrate as skilled migrants as emigration laws become ever more restrictive.
For over 20 years, we have been winning cases by tailoring our emigration solutions to match our client’s requirements.
We are delighted to be able to offer a pathway to Australian Permanent Residency by investment from $1.5m.
Our $1.5m emigration solution enables investors to secure shares in a compliant business for $500k while also securely investing $1m for a fixed return of $75K per annum.
Let us take the worst-case scenario for a moment. Assuming the business is worthless after four years, the fund has still provided a fixed return of A$75K per year, while the A$1m is protected.
Therefore, the cost of emigrating is A$125K, plus emigration fees, for you and your family.

Each year, the Australian federal and state governments review the 188 visa programme to ensure it delivers the best possible outcomes for Australia. Where deemed necessary changes are introduced without advanced notice.
