Second step ( in conjunction with state nomination) of Business Innovation stream application is to lodge Expression of Interest (EOI) via Skillselect.
You must use SkillSelect to make an expression of interest (EOI). All EOIs must be completed online using SkillSelect. An EOI is not a visa application and there is no fee to create or submit an EOI in SkillSelect.
State or territory governments or Austrade will identify and select skilled business people or investors they might want to nominate. If you are nominated by a state or territory government, or by Austrade, you will receive an invitation to apply from the SkillSelect system.
For streams which require a pass mark, you must indicate that your points score is at least equal to the pass mark to receive an invitation.
When you complete an EOI that includes one of these visa types, you will be asked which state or territory you wish to seek nomination from. You will be able to select one nominator, or any nominator.
