Victoria’s Business Innovation and Investment Program

Victoria's Business Innovation and Investment Program

January 2021

Victoria’s skilled visa nomination program re-opened on Tuesday, 5 January 2021.

Victoria’s full 2020-21 Business Innovation and Investment nomination program opened on 4 January 2021 (following the limited opening of the program for the Significant Investor stream applicants on 30 November 2020).

The Department of Home Affairs has allocated the Victorian Government a further 1,350 visa nomination places, in addition to the 400 places available as part of the interim program.

The Victorian Government has made changes to its nomination criteria with a view to strengthening Victoria’s ability to select the world’s best businesspeople and investors who will:

  • Create new jobs for Victorians;
  • Boost innovation in strategic sectors (digital technologies, advanced manufacturing, health and life sciences, agri-food, new energy and emissions reduction, circular economy and priority precincts);
  • Generate forward-looking businesses utilising their qualifications in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) fields.

Full details of the new nomination criteria for each visa type/stream in the Business Innovation and Investment program can be viewed on the Live in Melbourne website.
