The new Premium Investor Visa (PIV) will require an investment of $15 million, nomination by Austrade and has no residency requirements. PIV holders will be eligible for permanent residency after holding the complying investment for 12 months.
Other changes which will apply to the $5 million SIV:
The involvement of Austrade in the nomination of applicants on behalf of the Australian Government and in determining complying investment policy
Allowing ‘role swapping’ between primary and secondary applicants during the provisional visa stage
introduction of 180 day residency requirements for secondary visa holders
changes to improve visa processing times
These changes will not apply to current SIV holders or current applications.
