The estimation of your complying investment could fall beneath or go above AUD5 million.

In the event that you withdraw your complying investment while holding the visa, you will need to reinvest it into another going along venture inside 30 datebook days. In the event that you don’t do this, you will be in breach of your visa condition 8557 and your visa could be cancelled.
