The changes made relate to the Skilled Work Regional (provisional) Visa (subclass 491) nomination program and they include:

  • Onshore applicants applying for the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa (subclass 491) nomination must be living and working in regional Victoria at the time of nomination.
  • Some outer suburbs are included in the regional zones by the Department of Home Affairs.
  • If you submitted a subclass 491 Registration Of Interest (ROI) in 2022-23 and were not selected, you will need to submit a new ROI if you are still eligible.
