    Looks promising yang new regional visas! Tama ba intindi ko na pagka ang nagrant sayo is yung Skilled Work Regional Visa tapos for NSW kunwari, pwede ka anywhere in NSW except Sydney? Or may specific "place" within that state na dapat mag stay ka for 3 years?

    Yung sa Skilled Employer Sponsored naman, paano kaya maghahanap ng potential employer, mag aapply din thru Seek, Indeed ganun?

    Latest news about 491/494 visas: 491/494 to have the same access to welfare and government services as PRs.

    Pag ganito parang mas okay na wait na lang ng November kaysa mag apply ng 489 ngayon noh?

    Mukhang magiging tight nga talaga ang competition lalo na kung ganyan ka attractive ang benefits. Malaking factors kasi yung mga nandyan especially to those like me na may mga dependent kids. Pati na din yung pwede ka magmove in between different regions sa validity ng visa unlike yung 489 ngayon na need magstay sa region na nagnominate sayo for 2 years.

    Tama ba na yung 2 new visa schemes ang entitled sa new pointing system? Meaning kapag 190 visa aapplayan mo di mo maaavail yung additional points for applying as a single applicant or maaavail din? Just wondering.

    Nakita ko lang ito sa post ni @ShyShyShy sa kabilang thread. Posting here for info.

    When will I be invited to apply for a 491 visa?

    There is a ranking systems for an invitation to apply for a 491 visa. The rankings are:
    1. Equal first: Applicant with a skilled partner OR applicants without a partner
    2. Second: Applicant with A partner who can demonstrate Competent English (but does not have the skills for skilled partner points)
    3. Third: Applicant with a partner who is ineligible for either competent English or Skilled partner points.

    Can 491 visa holders lodge other visas?

    491 visa holders cannot lodge certain visas until they have held a 491 visa (and met its conditions) for three years. This includes skilled PR visas (189 and 190), business visas (124, 132 and 188), employer nominated PR visa 186 and the onshore partner visa (820). This requirement to reside and work in a designated regional area is underpinned by the need to support economic development and population growth in regional areas.

    How does the 491 visa lead to permanent residency?

    The 491 is a five-year visa. You can access permanent residence through the Subclass 191 (Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional)) visa when the following is met:

    You have lived, worked or studied in the designated regional area for at least three years, whilst holding a 491 visa, andYou can show earnings of at least $53,900 for three years. If you have a partner, only one of you needs to show this salary level (through tax returns) and this person would be the main applicant for the 191 visa

    What is the Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional) subclass 191 visa and how can I apply for it?
    The 191 visa has been established for subclass 491 and 494 visa holders as a pathway to permanent residency.
    The visa will come in effect on 16 November 2022.
    At time of application, eligible visa holders will need to prove the following:

    • The primary applicant has held a regional provisional visa for at least 3 years;
    • The primary applicant must have earned a minimum taxable income for the relevant three-year period (this income level is yet to be determined by the Department of Home Affairs);
    • The applicants must have complied with the conditions of the regional provisional visa, particularly the requirement to live, work and study in a designated regional area of Australia.

    Further details are yet to be released about the November 2019 changes to the Migration Program. The changes are very new and complex and applicants may require professional assistance to navigate them.

    53,900 per annum for 3 years? Masyado kaya malaki itong condition na ito kung sa region mag sstay? And dapat po ba sa ang magiging work mo ay related sa occupation mo? Sa visa 489 kasi kahit anong work pede basta ma satisfy yung 40 hours per week

    @JHONIEL minimum wage is $18.93, kung skilled ka and working in your line of experience i believe more than $53,900 per annum ang offer sayo. odd jobs will take you 2 jobs to get that salary and more per annum. mahirap? no kasi manageable ang work and most employers work around your schedule.

    Hello po ask ko lang I am starting to lodge 491 under family sponsored stream. Nagtataka ako at hindi eligible ang postal code ng 1st cousin ko, 3335 ing post code nya (Thorn Hill). Malau naman sa melbourne pero ndi inaaccept. As far as I know, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane lang naman ang ndi considered as regional aus. TIA po sa sasagot.

    @jomar011888 Nasa City of Melton yung post code na yan. Yung Melton kasama pa rin sa metropolitan Melbourne area. Ito yung mga areas na part of the metropolitan area https://liveinmelbourne.vic.gov.au/discover/melbourne-victoria/metropolitan-melbourne

    Oh I see, hindi na po pala eligible ung 1st cousin ko since nasa metropilotan area pa siya. Iba na pala siya sa 489 :(

    May nakalodge din ako na eoi since feb 2019, subclass 189 po 70pts and nagupdate lang siya ngayong nov 16 since single applicant po ako kaya naging 80. Pero not sure if gano pa rin katagal to receive invitation. Anyway salamat po sa info and always hoping for the best sa lahat ng nagaabang ng invites and grants po

    @Supersaiyan ,
    The Online Points Test for Skilled Migration are mainly for the Skilled-Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489), Skilled-Independent visa (subclass 189) and the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190).

    Skilled Migration Changes:

    Recently published legislation introduces changes to the Points Test for General Skilled Migration visas commencing 16 November 2019. They will be relevant to existing Subclasses 489, 189 and 190 visas, as well as the new Subclass 491 visa which also commences on 16 November 2019. The changes will affect subclass 491 applicants as well as applications for other skilled migration visas that have not been assessed at that time (but only in a way that is beneficial for applicants, by providing additional points). The new points details are:

    The changes to the points test will include:

    10 points for having a skilled spouse or de facto partner

    15 points for applicants nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by a family member residing in regional Australia, to live and work in regional Australia

    10 points for having certain STEM qualifications *Certain Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) qualifications

    10 points for applicants who do not have a spouse or de facto partner

    5 points for applicants with a spouse or de facto partner with "competent English"

    Thanks. I hope the ceiling points to be eligible for ITA would not change as well.

    Parang wala nmn pong extra points ang may Stem qualifications. Ang nareflect lang po sa EOI ko ay Regional state or territory sponsorship at pagiging single.

    Ask ko lang po if may listing po ng Regional Australia na meron po kayo? Kapag ba na grant ng 491 ay dun sa chosen state kayo maassign?

    Sa 491 may subsequent entrant visa
    https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/skilled-work-regional-provisional-491/subsequent-entrant#Eligibility

    Ang eligible ay any member of the family unit. Ibig sabihin po b pwede isama ang kapatid sa pagapply?

    @anna_m Yung member of family unit refers to spouse, de facto partner, and children only. Hindi considered member of the family unit ang magulang at mga kapatid.
