The Significant Investor Visa (SIV) Program is a pathway for high net worth individuals wishing to migrate to Australia. The SIV provides work, travel and study rights to the main applicant as well as their immediate family and dependents.
ANZ Private offers a suite of services to help you satisfy the requirements of the SIV Program.
- Offshore account opening
- Transactional banking services to place funds for your investments
- Foreign exchange strategies for currency conversion and risk management
- Financial advice for suitable complying investments to meet the investment needs and risk profile for the SIV investor.
With the help of our specialist Asian Team, you can make your move to Australia a successful and permanent one.
How can you qualify for the SIV program?
- Successful applicants will be required to invest A$5million into complying investments. After that, you will be immediately granted a provisional (subclass 188) visa.
- A requirement of the SIV program is that the applicant must nominate their preferred state or territory of residence, the government of that state or territory must then approve the application. It is important to note that each state or territory has different investment requirements to be fulfilled.
- After holding their investments for a minimum of four years, and satisfying the residency requirements, you will become eligible for a (subclass 888) permanent visa.
- There is a requirement to spend a minimum of 160 days in Australia over four years while holding the visa.
