Throughout 2021, Australia will be promoting migration to its regional areas – which are facing labor market shortages in several occupations, and require immigrants to power the local workforce and contribute to economic development.

The Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa is the most popular pathway to live in regional Australia temporarily and eventually secure an Australia PR Visa that allows the immigrant to live anywhere across the country.

This visa allows skilled workers who can meet regional labor market requirements to live and work in a designated regional area of Australia for up to 5 years – provided they are nominated for the visa by a state/territory or sponsored by an eligible relative living in regional Australia. After living and working in the region for three years,Guest Posting the visa holder can become eligible to apply for permanent residence. This is why it is known as a ‘provisional’ visa.

Also known as the Subclass 491 visa, this is a points-tested visa that evaluates the eligibility of candidates through a ranking system. Each candidate is allocated points based on their age, English language skills, work experience, academic qualifications, partner factors or single status, various adaptability factors, and nomination/sponsorship. The highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply for the visa through regular invitation rounds.

Each state/territory has different criteria and application procedures for nomination. Aspirants have to meet the nomination criteria of the state/territory, which is set by the local governing agency, and the visa eligibility criteria for Skilled Migration Australia, which is set by the federal government authority i.e. the Department of Home Affairs (DHA). Eligible candidates must first submit an Expression of Interest to the DHA, indicating an interest in migrating to a particular state/territory or any area.

If a state/territory finds the candidate’s profile suitable for nomination, the governing agency will invite the candidate to apply for a nomination. If the nomination/sponsorship is approved, the candidate will receive 15 additional points. This will increase their chances of being invited to apply for the visa by the DHA. If invited, candidates must submit a complete visa application, fees and supporting documents to the DHA within 60 days of receiving the invitation.

The final visa outcome is determined by the DHA.
