To Live and Work in Australia: The Regional 187 and 489 Visas

the 187 visa is a permanent residence visa that allows skilled workers to work in specific regional and low population growth areas of Australia

Work and Live in Regional Australia

The 187 and 489 visas were discontinued on Nov 16, 2019, and replaced by the 491 and 494 Regional visashttps://migrationways.com.au/updates/491-and-494-regional-visas/.

Australia’s Regional Visas: 187 Permanent and 489 Temporary Visas

Regional visas are an often forgotten or ignored visa option that may be the answer for many of those wishing to live and work in Australia. There are two Australian regional visas: the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme subclass 187 visa, and the Skilled Regional Provisional subclass 489 visa.  Let’s first look briefly at:

The 187 Regional Sponsored Permanent Residence Migration Scheme visa

The 187 visa is a permanent residence visa that allows skilled workers to work in specific regional and low population growth areas of Australia. The 187 visa allows employers in regional Australia to nominate and employ skilled foreign nationals in positions unable to be filled from the local labour market.

The list of occupations eligible for the 187 visa is broader than for other employer-sponsored visas. Read the current list of approved occupations for the 187 visa.

And for the 189, 190, 489, 887 visas.)

OR the combined list of skilled occupations.

Also check if a specific area is classified as Regional Australia.

Eligibility requirements for the 187 visa include:

*Applicants must be under the age of 45.

*Must be nominated for the visa by an employer.

*Must have the required skills and competent English for the nominated position.

*The position on offer must be full-time, ongoing, and be available for at least two years.

The 489 Skilled Regional Provisional visa

The 489 visa is a temporary visa that allows skilled workers to work in regional Australia for a maximum of four years.

Each Australian state has a visa nomination scheme for its regional areas and a list of occupations that it will nominate.

The 489 visa allows its recipients and their family to “live, work and study in a specified region of Australia”. Source: The Department of Home Affairs

The following notes about the 489 visa are from the Department of Home Affairs website:

“There are three pathways to the visa:

the Extended stay pathway

the Invited pathway

the Subsequent entry pathway

This visa might lead to the permanent Skilled Regional visa (subclass 887).
