We receive many enquiries from disheartened clients who have submitted expressions of interest for the independent skilled (subclass 189), and state nominated (subclass 190) visas, without receiving an invitation for months, or even a year or more.

While this situation is certainly frustrating, there could be other options that you may not have considered. For example, the regional area sponsored and independent visas were introduced in November last year and provide a pathway to permanent residence for eligible candidates.

Many feel nervous about needing to pack up and move to regional Australia, however, this could be due to unclear understanding of the definition of ‘regional Australia’. In short, anywhere outside of the Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney CBD and metropolitan areas are deemed regional Australia.

If you would like us to know more about, or assess your eligibility for, the independent or employer sponsored regional visa, or any other visa that may suit your requirements, feel free enquire here.
