The famous skilled regional visa (Sub-class 489) has been replaced by a Sub-class 491 visa on 16th November 2019. Australian Government is pushing and encouraging people to live, work, or study in regional areas to develop the economy of these areas through skilled regional visa sub-class 491.
Professionals who want to build their careers and settle with their families in a regional area of Australia can choose to apply under skilled work regional visa (Provisional). The regional visa allows skilled workers and their families to study or work, and live in a regional area of Australia for 5 years.

Once an individual gets a regional visa, he or she will not be allowed to apply for any other skilled visa in Australia for at least 3 years.

Once the candidate gets a 491 visa and has worked or studied for 3 years in that regional area with an income of 35,900 AUD annually in any occupation, then the candidate can apply for a Permanent residency visa through Pathway.
