Significant Investor Visa at a Glance Newsletter

    October 2014
    The Significant Investor Visa (or SIV) has brought in almost AU$2 billion of investment into Australia since its inception in November 2012. After a slow start, the timeframe for processing visa applications has improved and the number of applicants and granted visas is steadily increasing. Fund managers who have set up SIV-compliant investment structures are now starting to see funds flowing into them, particularly those who can capitalise on their connections to Asia Pacific.
