Policy Proposal – Entrepreneur visa

Download A Copy

Skilled workers are more mobile than at any time in the past.  As the international community awakens to the economic benefits startups bring with them, promising entrepreneurs have increasing flexibility (and incentives) in where they choose to start and grow their businesses.  To attract and reap the benefits of the most dynamic founders and startups, Australia needs an internationally competitive entrepreneur visa that is simple, well advertised, easy to qualify for, easy to apply for, and quick to process.  The existing Entrepreneur Stream of the Business Innovation and Investment 188 visa is none of those things.
