From 1 December 2015, the Government will introduce changes to Australia’s Foreign Investment Framework (subject to the passage of legislation).

As a result the foreign investment application system will be unavailable due to scheduled maintenance from midnight AEST Monday 30 November to 5:00pm AEST Tuesday 1 December. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please be aware that any applications that are not completed before the maintenance begins, will not be saved and will need to be resubmitted when the system becomes available. Applications fees will apply from 1 December 2015.

All foreign investment enquiries should be emailed to:
