优选证券 SIV 服务及费用
Australia is one of the world’s leading investment and migration destinations. The Australian government has recently introduced a new class of visa, the Significant Investor Visa (SIV), to encourage further targeted investment and migration to the country.
Australia is home to an open, transparent and stable system of government, with a strong and longstanding adherence to the rule of law. The country has experienced consistent economic growth over the last twenty years, and is now the world’s twelfth largest economy.
Australia has a small, but growing population and is the sixth largest country in the world. Surrounded by sea, Australia has one of the cleanest environments on the planet. The country has an abundance of natural resources and supports significant agricultural exports. Its population live in relative safety, and enjoy access to first class health and education. Most of the population live in large and sophisticated coastal cities, such as Sydney, which are supported by modern infrastructure and technology.
Australia is ideally situated on the footsteps of Asia, home to the world’s largest population and most dynamic economic region. Trade between Australia and China has grown dramatically over the last ten years. Direct flights now connect Australia to multiple Chinese destinations, such as Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou, with further connections available via internal transfer.
Significant Investor Visa (SIV)
The Australian government introduced the SIV program in November 2012 to attract further investment to the country, and to foster additional innovation and productivity. As of the end of February 2016, 1272 SIV Visas have been granted and AUD 6.4 billion has been invested in complying investments. The SIV is a pathway to permanent residency in Australia (http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/188-).
The requirements for the SIV are relatively simple. There is no age limit or English requirement. The applicant must be resident in Australia for a cumulative total of 160 days during the four year term of the SIV. Alternatively, the applicants spouse or de facto partner must be resident in Australia for a cumulative total of 720 days during the four year term of the SIV. Applicants are required to invest at least AUD 5 million in complying investments for a minimum of four years.
Successful applicants will be immediately granted provisional SIV’s (subclass 188) valid for four years. At the end of the four year period permanent SIV’s (subclass 888) are granted. Complying investments comprise:
- At least AUD 500,000 in eligible Australian venture capital or growth private equity funds investing in start-up and small private companies;
- At least AUD 1.5 million in eligible funds or listed investment companies that invest in emerging companies; and
- A balancing investment of up to AUD 3 million in funds or listed investment companies that invest in a combination of eligible assets, including Australian listed securities, eligible corporate bonds and notes, annuities and commercial real estate.
- The minimum term for your investment is four years.
Direct investment in Australian residential real estate does not qualify as a complying investment under the program.

We will charge you a simple flat fee of 1% per annum, to be paid from the distributions generated by your respective SIV investments.
To get started, we ask that you provide us with scanned copies of certified English translations of your passport, identity card and driver’s licence. The translator must endorse the translation with their full name, address, telephone number, and details of their qualifications and experience in translating Chinese to English. We will help you fill in client application forms with relevant parties and may request additional information from you, including original certified translated copies of your identification documents, in the future. We ask that you please be patient with the process.
If required, we shall also refer you to an expert migration agent or lawyer who will help you to navigate the procedural and documentation requirements for you to obtain your SIV. They will charge you separate fees for their services.
