The NSW Department of Industry has removed the “excluded industry sectors” criteria from its business visa nomination requirements.
The “excluded industry sector” criteria restricted the type of businesses that business migrants could set up in Sydney.
According to the NSW Government: “By removing the criteria and making this change, we aim to attract more business migrants who provide goods and services to all areas of NSW.
The business migration program plays an important role in making NSW a globally attractive location to live, learn, work, invest and to produce goods and services. The new and improved criteria will support the aim of the NSW migration program to create jobs, boost productivity and strengthen the economy.”
The sectors previously excluded were:
Cafes & Restaurants; Takeaway Food Services; Supermarket & Grocery Retail Stores; Fruit & Vegetable Retailing; Specialised Food Retailing; Newspaper & Book Retailing; Clothing Retailing; Footwear Retailing; Other Personal Accessory Retailing; Houseware Retailing; Manchester & Other Textile Goods Retailing; Other Electrical & Electronic Goods Retailing.
