South Australia: new entrepreneur visa

‘New entrepreneur visa to attract the world’s next innovators to South Australia’

The Immigration South Australia website contains the following passage:

22 Nov 2018

The world’s ‘best and brightest’ start-up entrepreneurs will be encouraged to move to South Australia to develop their business under a bold new Federal Government visa arrangement launched today.

South Australia has been selected as the pilot state for the three-year Supporting Innovation in South Australia (SISA) visa which will encourage budding foreign entrepreneurs, with business ideas centred around emerging industries – such as space, cyber security, big data, defence, agribusiness, medical technology and robotics.

The new visa is seeking to attract promising overseas seed-stage entrepreneurs to develop their concepts in South Australia, which in turn will add value to the local innovation eco-system, create jobs, and increase its number of business start-ups in our state.

To be considered, applicants will need endorsement from the South Australian Government through Immigration SA based on sign off from the innovation ecosystem providers or the Office of the Chief Entrepreneur. Successful applicants will be nurtured in South Australia’s local innovation ecosystem to help build a successful new business and grow jobs in our state.

Details information on the new Supporting Innovation in South Australia (SISA) visa is available on the Immigration SA website.
