As the first step of applying for a Subclass 188 or Subclass 132 visa under the Business Innovation and Investment program, you must submit an expression of interest ("EOI") in SkillSelect. If you are nominated by a state or territory, you will receive an invitation and only then could an application be made. If you receive an invitation subsequent to the submission of your EOI, further information on how to lodge an application will be provided in the letter of invitation. Once you receive an invitation, you are required to make an application within 60 days.

If you usually live in Taiwan or the People\'s Republic of China (including Hong Kong and Macau), you should provide your supporting documents to our office within 28 days after you have lodged your online application. Please refer to the following information on documentation requirements for applications processed by the Hong Kong Business Skills Processing Centre.
