    Thread: Buying property

      The SIR visa has very few restrictions when you really look into it.
      Yes you can buy a house when you want, as Tyke says we did this in 3 days. You have to get FIRB approval but you just have that written into the contract(it can take upto 28 days but ours only took one week)

      Yes you can buy a second house but it has to be Brand New.

      Yes you can set up your own business all you need to do is apply for a ABN (australian business number)
      and away you go.

      Don't be put off by what an agent says. A lot of agents know very little about the SIR visa.

      If you need any more specific info just ask

      Hi there Liz,

      you have no idea how happy that statement makes me. We can set up our own business. I'll start looking into it more then. I hoping to buy some land, have an architect draw up plans for a B & B, building it and then that's my husbands job basically. I'll go out and work :-(

      It's miles away and zillions of research needing done, running a B & B might not even be that profitable. But I did think, if we set this up in his name, and I do still fulfil the SIR 495 criteria then surely it's safe to do this.

      Ooo..love it when a plan comes together :-)

      Thanks for the advice
