From student visa to being self employed

Hi everyone,

Need your advice on my situation. I'm intending to study baking / pastry arts in Australia.
1) Would like to know whether it is fairly easy to get any job in such field.

2) if Ii can't find any job, I 'd like to setup a small bakery business / self employed in Australia after my student permit expires, how do I go about it?
Do I need a visa to be self employed or bring self employed / in business can help me get a visa?

Kindly let me know... Any response is much appreciated.
Thanks😊

28 days after your course finishes, and your visa expires, you will be leaving Australia, unless you have another Visa in place to allow you to stay.

You should need a Visa that allows you to work, whether self employed or not.

As far as I know, that would be any Visa that allows you to work.

The skill has to be on the skilled shortage list to get a working visa.

Just so you know starting your own business like a bakery costs alot of money in setup costs etc. Not to mention being familiar with your tax obligations too.

The only visa that allows you to be self employed is a visa where you have proven already that you can run a business that brings in a substantial amount (500K-1 mill a year). A new grad does not have that history. you also need the funds to start this up - at least 500K is needed and then the visa is not a perm one, only temporary and is linked to the success of the business.

That depends on if you apply for a visa using your skills, or a partner visa, or working holiday visa, etc.

I have many friends that have come and started small businesses. Some were tradesmen who got a visa on their skill, and then go self employed in that trade.

To apply for a visa specifically to start a business would not be easy, as others have mentioned.
