Good Morning

It is not that easy

The following visas are available.

The first is not permanent

https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/410-

The next is but they have to invest here

https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/405-

If he does not earn the $65,000.00 per annum then the first option is the best

But he cannot live here permanently

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon
