Australia Skilled and Business Migration Program

Skilled and business migrants bring benefits to Victoria through economic, social and cultural diversity. The Victorian Skilled and Business Migration Program create value for Victoria by supporting the attraction of investor and business migrants, and high calibre global talent (including international student graduates).

The program works to attract and retain migrants who:

  • Work in occupational areas of advanced knowledge
  • Work in industries forecast to have strong growth and sustainability
  • Have entrepreneurial capacity and experience
  • Operate in areas where government visa nomination provides a proven positive impact to Victoria
  • Increase access to investment capital to help grow the economy and jobs.
  • The program is managed by the Victorian Government’s Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources.
