Regional Area in Australia

New Regional Visas

To encourage new skilled migrants to live in regional areas, the Australian Government has announced two new skilled regional provisional visas introduced in November 2019:

  • Skilled Employer-Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa: for people sponsored by an employer in regional Australia.
  • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa: for people who are nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by an eligible family member to live and work in regional Australia.

Applicants granted one of these new visas will have a pathway to full permanent residence of Australia. Migrants will be required to live and work in a regional area of Australia for at least three years before they are eligible to apply for permanent residence.

If you are planning to apply for a skilled regional provisional visa, book your appointment with our registered migration agent.
