Australian migration laws are ever changing and can be quite confusing for those wishing to immigrate to Australia through the individual and business visa streams.

FC Lawyers’ immigration lawyers and registered migration agents specialise in all aspects of immigration law with specific focus on skilled, employer sponsored, investor and business migration.

Our team have provided tailored advice and assistance to thousands of migrants with business interests in Australia and ensured a successful outcome for all involved.

Australian Business Visa Streams

Business Innovation Stream (for people with business skills who want to establish, develop and manage a new business in Australia); Investor Stream (for people who want to make a designated investment of $1.5million AUD in an Australian state or territory and maintain business activity in Australia); and Significant Investor Stream (for people willing to invest at least $5million AUD into complying investments in Australia and want to maintain business activity in Australia).

As a recognised specialist in Immigration Law, FC Lawyers is regarded as one of the premier immigration legal practices in Queensland and Australia. We continue to assist small to medium enterprises right through to some of Australia’s largest corporations.

Our team is experienced in all types of visas options for businesses and individuals throughout Australia. We also have extensive experience with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT), notifications of intention to refuse or cancel visas and ministerial interventions.

It is important to have an expert on your side who understands the migration laws in Australia, particularly when you are deciding what the best option for yourself is.

We will work with you to achieve a cost-effective solution for any business or individual Australian visa issues by ensuring that you apply for and obtain the right visa for your circumstances.

Our experienced team will prepare and lodge your Australian visa application and supporting paperwork with the Department of Home Affairs (DoHA).

Our dedicated team can also assist you with any application for Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) approval for the purchase of any real estate or business investment within Australia.

At FC Lawyers, we have many multilingual team members that are fluent in a wide range of languages throughout the world. If you need any assistance with language, please don’t hesitate to contact our team so that we can provide you with the help to make your migration matter a success.

Work and Skilled Visas

Our Migration Law & Visas team consult with you and your business to establish what the best procedure is in employing and sponsoring an overseas skilled worker. We assess the applicant’s chances of securing a visa by guiding them through the visa application process. Successfully lodging your visa application and being approved will provide the sponsored skilled worker secure employment and either permanent residency in Australia or temporary residency for a specified period of time.

However, getting the application wrong and having a visa refused can have a direct impact on your business and your proposed skilled worker. If the application for your skilled worker is refused, this could prevent the applicant from lodging a further application. This could have high impact complications for your business or company. Ensure you speak with our Migration Law & Visas team as we have helped many businesses and companies successfully sponsor overseas skilled workers.

Business and Investor Visas

Applying for a Business and Investor Visa can be one of the only ways to residency in Australia for many people. Our Migration Law and Visas team will provide precise advice and guidelines for you to ensure that your visa application has the best possible chance to be approved.

Our Migration Law and Visas team have undertaken many visa applications on behalf of clients already who without consulting and working closely with our team, wouldn’t have lodged applications through the Business and Investor Visa streams and would have been refused entry into Australia. Being refused may have heavy consequences particularly if the application was made onshore.

Our Migration Law & Visas team have worked alongside many businesses and individuals to provide the best platform available and ensure success for any visa application lodged on our behalf.

When you use the FC Lawyers team you can be assured that our Knowledge, Innovation and Service is on your side.
