The Australian Significant Investor Visa (“SIV”)


Click here for more information.


The SIV complying investment rules were changed in 2015 by the Australian Government and from 1 July 2015, SIV applicants are required to invest at least $5 million in complying investments, which must include:


  1. At least $500,000 in eligible Australian venture capital or growth private equity (VCPE) fund(s) investing in start-up and small private companies;
  2. At least $1,500,000 in an eligible managed fund that invests in emerging companies; and
  3. A ‘balancing investment’ of up to $3,000,000 in managed funds that invest in a combination of eligible assets that include Australian listed securities, eligible corporate bonds or notes, annuities and real property (subject to the 10% limit on residential real estate).

A one page outline of the complying investment framework is available on the Austrade website here.
