Hi guys. Wanted to ask you all a question. I am an Australian citizen and planning to open up an e-commerce business in Australia. The business has 2 more partners who are non Australian residents. The share is 40-40 and mine is 20. The company will be based in Australia with proper tax returns and salaries paid. My partners are also planning to invest further in the future however I wanted to see will they be getting a business/permanent visa ? And what would be the requirements for it ?

I cannot answer your question, but I don't see why they would be granted such a visa, an e-commerce business does not require the owners to be resident in any particular country.

If I was an official faced with a request for such a visa, I would think that perhaps this was just a way of getting into the country, not of setting up a business that would employ Australians.
