Consultation on Tier 1 Entrepreneur route

Consultation on Tier 1 Entrepreneur route

The Migration Advisory Committee has been asked to look at the Tier 1 Entrepreneur route again and are holding a consultation which closes on 12 June 2015. Details here. The issues to be examined are:

  • the initial eligibility criteria of access to funds is sufficient and whether other criteria, for example, assessment of previous entrepreneurial activity and/or testing the purpose of the investment, should be applied
  • the existing eligibility and extension criteria are aligned sufficiently with entrepreneurial and early stage business life-cycles, including consideration of the role angel investors and crowd-funding
  • the route utilises international best practice. As part of this, the MAC is requested to consider route design and incentives to ensure competitiveness
