    What is 489 Skilled Regional Visa?

    A temporary visa is the 489 Skilled Regional Visa, also known as Subclass 489 visa. It enables professionals or skilled immigrants to live and work in Australia.

    You should keep in mind that the Australian government recently closed category 489. With effect from November 16, 2019, it has been replaced by the subclass 491 visa (Skilled Work Regional Provisional Visa Subclass 491). The subclass 489 visa category is specifically created for applicants who have the necessary qualifications, experience, and skills that are in demand in certain Australian states or remote locations.
