Designated Investment Bonds

TCV provides Government-guaranteed bonds in Victoria as Designated Investment under the following visa classes:

  • Investor Retirement (subclass 405) visa
  • Business Innovation and Investment (Provisional) visa (subclass 188B) Investor Stream.

These Government Bonds have been specified as a Designated Investment. They can only be issued after you have been advised in writing to do so by the Australian overseas mission or the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs) office processing your application for migration/residence; and/or by the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR).

Please note that immigration law changes frequently. There are also specific investment requirements for Designated Investments. You should obtain and read the latest information from Home Affairs and the DJPR. TCV cannot provide you with immigration and/or investment advice.
