494 visa

The Australian Government’s new 494 visa enables successful applicants to live, work and study in designated regional areas of Australia. It is designed for regional employers to address identified labour shortages within their region by sponsoring skilled workers where employers can’t source an appropriately skilled Australian worker. For migration purposes most locations of Australia outside major cities (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) are classed as designated regional areas. Perth and the Gold Coast are classed as regional areas.

As with all visa applications there are certain requirements that must be met. For the 494 visa these are:

  • Be Nominated To Work In An Occupation On The Relevant Skilled Occupation List
  • Have At Least 3 Years Relevant Work Experience In Your Nominated Occupation
  • Have A Relevant Skills Assessment, Unless An Exemption Applies
  • Work Only For Your Sponsor Or Associated Entity, Unless An Exemption Applies
  • Be Under 45 Years Of Age, Unless An Exemption Applies
  • Meet Minimum Standards Of English Language Proficiency
