What is the 491 Skilled Work Regional Visa through State or Territory Nomination?

The 491 Skilled Work Regional Visa through State or Territory nomination, is a purpose designed visa which was introduced by the Australian government as part of a larger campaign to rapidly grow and develop less populated areas of Australia.  This visa also addresses complaints of skilled labour and talent shortages in Australia’s smaller towns and cities by allowing qualifying migrants to legally live and work in Australia in record time.

Australia’s smaller towns and regions are in desperate need of a variety of professionals to fill positions which often stay vacant for months due to a lack of qualified applicants in that area.  Vacant positions affect an organization’s ability to perform and grow which in turn negatively impact on the community and local economy.

The 491 Skilled Visa limits the holder to working in Regional Australia for 5 years and maintain an annual salary of AUD$53 900. Holders of this visa can however apply for Permanent Residency after three years of maintaining these conditions, by then applying for the 191 Visa for Permanent Residency. Once you have Permanent Residency, you can stay permanently in Australia and work and live anywhere in Australia.
