The Entrepreneur Visa: NISA #3

In its third submission to the government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA), Innovative Research Universities (IRU) supports the government’s plan to introduce a new Entrepreneur visa as a clear pathway to attract more entrepreneurial and research talent to Australia.  To achieve NISA’s aims, flexibility will be key.   The Entrepreneur visa should be implemented in an enabling rather than a restrictive manner while making sure immigration requirements are met.  In addition, the government should maximise the potential of the Entrepreneur visa by using it to encourage talent already in Australia to make the transition to entrepreneurship.
