Regional Visa PR  Pathway

A new PR pathway will be available late this year for workers who are eligible through employment in regional areas. This is the skilled regional 191 visa.

This regional visa PR pathway is for workers who have lived, worked and studied in a designated regional area on a 494 visa for three years. This then makes them eligible to apply for the 191 visa which they can do from 22 November this year.

Income Condition.

Applications must have had a taxable income of at least 53,900  for at least three years while holding the 494 visa.  Also, primary and secondary applicants must have complied with all the 494 visa conditions.

How Long Can You Stay?

This is a permanent visa. It lets you stay in Australia indefinitely.

The visa has a travel component that expires 5 years after the date of visa grant. If you wish to travel after this date, you must apply for a Resident Return visa.

For citizenship purposes, your permanent residence starts on the day we grant the visa if you are in Australia.

Regional Visa PR and Family

You can include members of the family unit in your Regional PR Visa application if they hold an eligible visa. You must include eligible  family members at the time you apply. You can’t add them after you have submitted your application.

You can include family members who no longer meet the standard definition of member of the family unit provided they hold an eligible visa that was granted on the basis that they were a member of your family unit. This provision would apply, for example, if you want to include a child in your application who has turned 23 years of age since they were granted an eligible visa.

Family members included in your application must meet our health and character requirements. Family members not accompanying you to Australia may also need to meet our health and character requirements.
