As part of the Government’s new focus on regional skilled migration, two new visas will commence on 16 November 2019. The changes will introduce a three year stay in a regional area before becoming eligible to apply for permanent residence, provide access to priority visa processing, and allow visa holders to live and work in regional areas under a more broad list of occupations.
