The Australian government has announced some key immigration rule changes a couple of weeks back. One of these important changes announced was the introduction of new Skilled Regional Visas Subclass 491.
The Australian government in last few months emphasizing on diverting the new immigrants to regional parts of Australia, as the big cities, such as Melbourne, Sydney, etc. are overburdened due to massive migration to these cities in last few years. Hence, the government has decided to divert new migrants to regional Australia and provide some relaxations also in the process to encourage migration into the regional parts.
The Department of Home Affairs Australia is going to implement some key changes to Skilled Immigration Policy in Australia with effect from November 16, 2019.
As mentioned above the new Subclass 491 visa will replace the existing Subclass 489 visa. Also, the newly enhanced point system will support the newly introduced Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa.
Moreover, w.e.f. November 16, 2019, the applicants nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by a family member residing in regional Australia, will now get 15 points, whereas earlier they used to get the 10 points only.
To go with the above changes, Australia is also implementing the below point system changes from November this year, i.e.
Hence, if you have got sponsorship or nomination from regional Australia, and you also meet the criteria of new changes in the point system, i.e.
You can earn up to 40 immigration points (15+10+10+5) without much of an effort.
