The AU B1 visa can be used to enter the country as a non-immigrant visa. To be granted a B-1 visa, the applicant must satisfy the Australian  Immigration and Nationality Act section 214(b). A Consular Officer must deny a visa application under section 214(b).

A Consular Officer must review an AU business visa application to ensure that there is no immigrant intent. Here is where the "strong and weak ties" analysis comes in.
