Australia Residency

GOLDEN VISA Australia – CITIZENSHIP

The Australian Significant Investor Visa ( Australia Golden Visa ) was introduced by the government in 2012. It offers a streamlined pathway for High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI) to Permanent Residency in Australia through investment immigration. There is no direct Australia Citizenship by Investment programme although citizenship can be applied for after 3-4 years residency including 1 year of Permanent Residency.

Australia Citizenship by Investment Programme:

  • Population: 26.14 million
  • Capital: Canberra
  • Language: English
  • Religion: Catholic, Anglican
  • Currency: Australian dollar
  • GDP per capita: 57373$
  • Climate: Summer, Rainy winters

Australia Citizenship by Investment Programme:

  • Investment of A$5m in specific structure
  • No age limit
  • Option to bypass English requirement
  • Minimum stay just 40 days in 5 years
  • Permanent Residence (PR) after 4 years
  • No country quota
  • No investment needed until after pre approval

After 4 years the applicant and family can transition from Temporary Residence (TR Subclass 188) to Permanent Residence (PR Subclass 888).

Although high, the investment is restricted and regulated. Residency is restricted to the immediate family. There are no country quotas currently and no investment need be made until after pre-approval.

Australia is a popular destination for HNWI’s seeking residency through investment. In fact in 2017 Australia attracted 10,000 HNWI’s through investment, the highest of any country in the world, ahead of the USA with 9000 in 2nd place.

Australia offers a high standard of living often ranked at or close to number 1 in the world. It has high ratings for safety of women and children. Australia is an excellent base from which to do business in SE Asia and the economy has performed exceptionally well with 27 years of continuous growth without recession.

With regard to investment immigration for Australia there are rules on how the A$5m can be invested.

  • Maximum 60%: In non-residential real estate, corporate bonds and shares.
  • Minimum 10%: Venture Capital

TAXATION

Temporary residents are exempt from tax on foreign income earned while overseas and CGT on foreign property. After 4 years it is possible to extend the Temporary Residence to 8 years.
