Like the short stay visit visa for Australia, Australian business visas for short term visits are granted for a 12 month period with the freedom to remain in Australia for up to three months. This visa service is based upon the same conditions as the tourist visa and is designed for those who wish to visit Australia in order to engage in a variety of business activities. Short stay business visas are ideal for those entering the country to attend a conference or meeting, engage in negotiations or to perform ‘fact finding’ visits to the country to source potential clients or suppliers. However, as a strictly temporary visa for Australia this class places heavy restrictions upon a holder’s right to engage in any form of employment whilst in the country.
A candidate may only work in Australia for a very limited period and must only conduct work which could not be performed by an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
