Subclass 893:

State Sponsored Investor Visa

Subclass 893 visa is reserved for people who undertake business and investment activities in Australia. This visa allows the holder to stay in Australia on a permanent basis. To be eligible, the primary applicant must first hold the temporary visa that qualifies such lodgement.

It is important to note this is a transitory visa which is no longer widely used by people with the same or similar credentials, because the qualifying visas have been repealed.

  • Residence:

The primary applicant must have lived in Australia as the holder of a Subclass 165 - State/ Territory Sponsored Investor (Provisional) Visa for a total period of at least 2 years out of the 4 years immediately before the application submission. The 2 year period does not have to be continuous.
