The Significant Investor visa (SIV) (188C) is part of the Business Innovation and Investment Program (BIIP) run by the Department of Home Affairs. The 188C SIV is a four-year provisional visa available to high net worth investors who invest at least A$5 million into complying investments.
If you hold a 188C SIV, you can apply for permanent residence (888C SIV) in as little as four years, provided that you meet eligibility requirements at the time. The 188C SIV can be extended twice and by two years each time. There are no English language or age requirements for the 188C SIV.
The Australian Government has overall responsibility for policy and program design in relation to the Significant Investor visa and makes final decisions to grant a visa. The Australian Government is responsible for all health, character, source of funds and security checking on Significant Investor visa applications.
