Updates on Business Innovation & Investment Program

The following actions are being taken by Skilled & Business Migration due to the strong demand and the small interim allocation of 70 nomination seats that South Australia has received from the Commonwealth Government Department of Home Affairs:

  • Business Innovation stream (188A): The intention to Apply (ITA) process remains open
  • Investor stream (188B): Temporarily closed to new applicants
  • Significant Investor stream (188C): Temporarily closed to new applicants
  • Entrepreneur stream (188E): This is still available, but there are very few spots, so you must first contact a service provider.

The South Australian government is still collaborating with the federal government to seek additional program slots.
