Government tightening up on immigrants buying newsagencies

Immigrants moving to Sydney under a popular business visa are now not able to qualify by starting a restaurant, grocery store or newsagency. This does not apply yet outside of Sydney but I suspect that restrictions on ­people who migrate to Australia if they agree to run a business or invest money in Australia will tightened up. You can read more about it here.

A similar situation occurred two weeks ago, when lotto in Victoria blocked two newsagency sales on the grounds that the proposed buyers did not know English well enough.
