Thank you for joining Interstaff’s Regional Visa Q&A Video Series. In our series of bite-sized videos, we aim to share our migration insights on questions submitted by HR Professionals and Business Owners about Australia’s recently introduced Regional 494 Visa and regional migration arrangements.
The Regional 494 Visa is a good alternative to the commonly used 482 TSS Visa because it provides a direct PR pathway for eligible employees in Perth, the Gold Coast and regional/remote areas. However, applying for a 494 Visa is more complex and time consuming as it requires a mandatory Skills Assessment and approval from a Regional Certifying Body (RCB). Watch our 4 minute explainer video for our insights.
