Significant Investor Visa

The Significant Investor Visa (SIV or subclass 188 visa) is an initiative by the Australian Government. It is designed to attract overseas investment into the Australian economy whilst providing an opportunity for people to migrate to Australia.


Under the SIV, investors must invest $5 million (Australian Dollars) into a SIV complying investment for a minimum of four years, before being eligible to apply for permanent residency. For detailed information on what is a complying investment, please refer to the Complying Investment Framework.

Investors applying under this visa will need to prove that the funds they are investing in are compliant. We have completed the required Declaration Form 1413 for complying funds offered by us. For a copy of the form or to find out more, please contact:
