Australian Business Visa FAQ

Q1. What are unacceptable business practices for 188A visa?

Businesses falling outside the scope of generally accepted Australian cultural and social norms, or those likely to offend or give rise to controversy amongst large segments of the Australian population, may be deemed as grounds for refusal. Minor, or “once-off” conduct will generally not be taken to constitute a “history” of said business practices.

The following are cited as business conduct which may be deemed unacceptable:

  • Various forms of legal or regulatory non-compliance.
  • Criminal convictions in relation to business practices.
  • Fraudulent trade practices.
  • Perceived underpayment of staff
