Smart investors see Australia as an opportunity – our strategic partnership with Transworld opens up a world of possibilities for buyers of quality Australian businesses
Thanks to a new strategic partnership between The Migration Agency and Transworld Business Advisors, a global firm of business advisors and brokers, international clients can now enjoy fully-supported and seamless solutions for buying or selling a quality business in Australia and qualify for permanent residency.
Transworld has acted as a trusted advisor for business buyers and sellers for over thirty years, helping to prepare businesses for sale and act for investors buying quality Australian businesses. In addition to their advisory services, they offer a variety of free resources, such as a free Business Health Check that’s designed to help entrepreneurs build additional value in their businesses.
Through this new partnership between TMA, Transworld will serve clients who are buying businesses in the Australian market. TMA will aid in these efforts by creating bespoke visa solutions for overseas business owners and investors so that their immigration affairs are in order before coming to Australia to own and manage businesses.

Why TMA and Transworld are coming together for business buyers and sellers
Acquiring a quality business in Australia can be highly lucrative for an international investor, and in light of Australia’s strong economic performance during the global health pandemic, it has become an attractive destination for business owners and investors to invest and acquire Australian residency.
The “Transworld-TMA” partnership delivers strong benefits to clients with a complete business investment solution, from strategic marketing to generating qualified buyer leads in Australia and internationally. The partnership works together to enable a purchaser to buy a quality asset, settle into business ownership and help business owners receive the best value for the sale of their asset. It’s about an end-to-end business investment solution.
As Transworld expertly guides its clients from start to finish with business purchases and sales, TMA will ensure that all of the visa and immigration needs are met.
With this expert guidance, business owners and sellers can focus on the core aspects of the transaction with peace of mind that the commercialities and legalities are being managed smoothly and professionally.
Business ownership and investment visas in Australia
The Australian Government encourages business ownership and investment through 2 main pathways – the subclass 132 Business Talent (Permanent) visa and the subclass 188/888 Business Innovation and Investment visa.
Future Australian business owners may come to Australia on a Business Talent (Permanent) visa subclass 132, which is asset-based and allows business owners to stay in Australia permanently with their family members.
Another option is the Business Innovation and Investor visa subclass 188 (business innovation stream). This visa was created for people who have had a successful business career and want to establish or acquire an existing Australian business. This temporary visa comes with specific requirements and lasts for four years.
Finally, the Business Innovation and Investor visa subclass 188 (investor stream) is also used commonly among migrants with a high net worth. Successful investors have a path to residency under this visa if they can meet certain income and business ownership requirements.
In summation, Australia offers many options for business owners to establish a permanent foothold in the country. TMA’s role in the Transworld-TMA partnership will ensure that people who are acquiring Australian businesses obtain the visas they need to operate in Australia, remain compliant with all visa regulations, and stay aware of any changes in visa programs.
