Are you looking to start a business or invest in Australia?
Business and Skilled Migration Queensland (BSMQ) believes in giving successful businesses and investors the opportunity to join our community and contribute our growing economy and great lifestyle. Queensland nominates business migrants in industries that are in demand, for both provisional visas and permanent residency, which allows you to invest or set up a business in Queensland.
What is state nomination?
State migration plans were introduced in Australia to allow individual states and territories to sponsor business migration applicants under a broad range of industries, in order to meet business and investment shortages within the state.
The state nominating body specifies which business and investments, the State of Queensland can nominate applicants under and specify the number of visas that will be granted as part of this program.
