Australia Visitor Visa | Business Visa
Business Visas are granted for various reasons and are generally temporary in nature. People who visit Australia for a short period of time are issued Tourist Visas. This is also known as Visitor Visa so foreign nationals get entry into the country. Visitors may enter for different reasons including holidaying or to check out business scope for business plans. The duration of such visas can be 3 months, 6 months to even one year in some scenarios. There are many different purposes why people apply for this visa. It includes visiting, tourism, holiday, medical reasons, yoga class, etc. Some people apply for this visa for entry to Australia and then apply for a specific visa there.
Business Visitor Visa: Even though the name is called Business Visa, it cannot be used for earning profits there. In order to make money in Australia you have to apply for short term/ long term Work Permit. The business activities that are allowed on the Australia Business Visitor Visa include making inquiries to check the scope of business there or govt. inquiries, contract negotiations, business interviews, business meeting or conference, job seminar, etc.
Fast – Track Or Priority Basis (Only For India)
The processing time for these sorts of visas to Australia generally take very less time as compared to general visas. The processing time is as less as 48 hours. However some times it takes longer to approve even simplest visa due to some reasons. This could be a delay or even visa may be refused.
Factors that will negatively affect the fast track process: -
- If you are less than 18 years of age and do not have a consent from legal guardian or parent.
- If the visa applicant is unable to furnish the necessary document requirement mentioned on checklist.
- If the candidate is unable to complete the required health/ medical check up examination.
- If candidate has got previous negative immigrant history / criminal history.
It is advisable that such visa applicants firsts thoroughly consider their travel needs/ plans before opting for priority basis. If losses are incurred due to which the visa is not granted in time for urgent plans of travel for such aspiring visa applicants, the Home Affairs or VFS will not take responsibility for it.
