Each state/territory has a website that details the requirements for nomination. Generally, most states/territories have few restrictions on the type of business and are more concerned with your experience, assets to be invested in the business and the number of employment positions to be created. If you want to find out more information, such as the industries they prefer, you can check their websites.
Where can I find out information about what industries an Australian nominating state is interested in?
I learned that getting a special endorsement depends largely on how one’s proposed business fits in the focused or interested industries of a nominating state. Different states could have different industries of interest. Is there a way for potential investors to know which industries are of special interest for a particular state?
It is a question of looking at each state’s business and investment website.
There is no publicized list that we could find readily available, so it's a subjective application that needs to be accepted by the state or territory government.
Each nominating state or territory government body has a designated team of people specializing in state business migration. They would be happy to meet with you and discuss if your business fits in with their state priorities and strategies for migration. Information is also available on their websites, and a registered migration agent can also provide valuable information and put you in contact with the right people.
