Two new regional visas will be started on 16 Nov 2019.  These visas will lead to Australia PR after tenure of 3 years. The visas apply to regional Australia and everywhere excluding for Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and the Gold Coast.

  • It will have 14,000 positions allotted per year
  • It will be primarily given for five years
  • It is a point tested skilled visa
  • It needs either nomination from the state government or sponsorship by a qualified family member who is settled in a selected regional area
  • You need to have a positive skills evaluation
  • You need to be below the age of 45 years.

The Regional Sponsored Migration (subclass 187) Scheme Visa and the Skilled Regional (Provisional) (subclass 489) Visa will close to latest applicants from 16 Nov 2019.
