Australia is one of very few countries, which was not significantly affected by the world financial crisis during the period between 2008 and 2009. Australia is one of countries with leading social benefit and health care system. Besides, the Australian government often encourages foreign investors and business people to migrate to Australia in order to develop the economy and foreign trade. Therefore in the recent years, many foreign investors and business people around the world have visited Australia in order to seek business opportunities for investment and doing business. Many of them have migrated to Australia permanently.
Recently, many Vietnamese citizens buy investment properties in Australia. In particular, Vingroup has splurged $22.5 million buying a Sydney CBD site for a major hotel in Sydney. This explains the major attraction of Australia for Vietnamese investors.

In late 2014 I was granted a Business Innovative Visa 188. After notifying us about the visa, our Registered Migration Agent and Lawyer did not provide us advice regarding “what’s next” in order to proceed to Permanent Residency Business visa 888. My wife and I searched for a trustworthy Registered Migration Agent and Lawyer to seek advice regarding our obligations with visa 188 and that what we should do in order to proceed to 888 visa.
It is such a great opportunity that we came to know the Registered Migration Agent and Lawyer of IST Services. She has helped us review our business in Australia and provided advice regarding which 888 visa criteria. Currently she helps me with notifying the NSW government, business visa office about my second business which I have just registered. Now our family feel comfortable that we are clear about our obligation with the visa and positive about our next step to 888 visa.

I have a temporary business visa. Before coming to Australia we used a visa service in Vietnam. Once we got the visa and moved to Australia, we did not know how to proceed to Permanent Residency. My spouse and I had to seek for a Registered Migration Agent in order to understand about our rights and obligations in accordance with our temporary business visa. Thanks to that, we will be eligible for the Business visa Permanent Resident in the next 6 months. We realized that if we had used IST Services before, we would have not faced so much difficulties finding the right visa services before and after moving to Australia.
I have a temporary Australian business visa. However, after a year doing business in Australia, my company has not made enough turnover in accordance with the requirement of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. We sought advice from IST Services and IST’s Registered Migration Agent and Lawyer advised me to open one more business to increase the opportunity to get enough turnover as required. IST Services assisted me with communicating with the State of New South Wales, Australia to inform them about the new additional business without any difficulties. I am very grateful the dedication and hard work from IST Services.
