Australia Practice Team

Australian clients have unique needs that demand a specialist approach. Nothing says this more than the US special E3 visa which is exclusively available to Australian Nationals.

For over a decade, the lawyers in D&A’s Australia team have helped many Australian clients move to the United States and the United Kingdom through a variety of different visa categories.

US Visa options for an Australian National or resident include the E-3 Visa specifically for Australian nationals, the EB-5 Australia investor visa for investors seeking a fast route to permanent residency (a Green Card); the E-2 Visa for Australians seeking to establish a business in the United States; the Australia working visa; and the L-1 Visa for Australians seeking to expand their existing business.

Immigration Options for Moving to Australia

As the only developed economy to have grown for 27 consecutive years, Australia offers unparalleled opportunities for high-net-worth individuals. Australia’s economic success has been driven by a diverse industrial base and a highly-educated, multicultural workforce. The country boasts world-leading mining, agriculture and service sectors and more than 40% of the workforce has tertiary education. Australia is culturally diverse and more than 30% of the population was born overseas. The world’s largest island nation has a history of good governance and effective public services, including a strong education sector, which has made Australia the world’s third most popular destination for overseas students.

Significant Investor Visa

Australia offers a Significant Investor Visa to qualifying individuals in exchange for a four-year investment of AUD5 million in a range of Australian funds. An investment in residential real estate cannot be counted toward this type of visa, which can be converted to permanent residency after four years. There are no age limits and applicants are able to pay an additional fee if they have poor English. There are no caps on the numbers of visas available and there are no country quotas. Applicants must be nominated by a state or territory before being invited to apply for the visa, and the applicant should express a genuine intent to live in that state or territory and be economically active in Australia after the visa is converted to permanent residency

The E3 visa is only available to Australian Nationals and has unique requirements. U.S. consulates across Australia maintain different visa processing procedures for visas such as the E-2 visa.

Mark is one of the best things happened to me in immigration. I was very skeptical as my last attempt to obtain an L1A was a negative one through another lawyer.
