What is a Subclass 489 visa?

A subclass 489 visa permit is a temporary skilled trade person and specialists visa. It mostly consists of people who have been nominated by eligible relatives already residing in any designated region of the nation. This visa subclass is also advisable for individuals who did not get selected for subclass 189 or subclass 190.

Benefits of Subclass 489 visa:

More than 80% of the migrants tend to move out of their designated regions once they have gained a PR. This moving out into big cities is putting a strain on cities like Melbourne and Sydney due to increased population and congestion. The new laws that bound the migrants to live in regional areas will not only lessen the strain on Sydney and Melbourne but also generate employment opportunities, improve housing, rent and increase focus on improving infrastructure in regional areas. With an increased number of people moving and living in regional areas the government is bound to focus on not only creating but also improving the right basic infrastructure, which was being neglected until now. Other benefits of subclass 489 visa include:

Work Permit:

Holders of Skilled visa are allowed to not only live but also work in designated regional areas for 4 years in Australia.

Permit to Study:

Individuals having skilled visa are allowed to study in specific regions in Australia.


Eligible visa holding relative already residing in Australia can nominate and sponsor other family members.

Permanent Residency:

Other family members of the visa holder are allowed to study, though only in designated areas in Australian for a time period of for years.
