Skilled Nominated Provisional Visa or Sponsored (Provisional) VisaSubclass 491

Subclass 491 is a pathway to get the Permanent Residency of Australia.

It is a regional visa where the different states and territory of Australia give invitations to the applicants to come and stay for a minimum of 3 years and then apply for the Permanent Residency visa of Australia.

Why Subclass 491 Visa?

Subclass 491 visa has its own merits as it gives the applicants extra 15 points in the Expression of Interest for the State Nomination application.

The other benefit of subclass 491 is that each state or territory has a separate skilled occupation list which has more occupations listed as compared to the Subclass 190 visa skilled occupation list.

The subclass 491 has less requirements in terms of work experience or stay in a particular state or territory for the nomination to be approved.

In this way a person who has studied in a different state can move to another state or territory and apply with the less stringent requirements and still get to the pathway to Permanent Residency of Australia.
