Applications for NSW nomination for the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) will open in mid January 2020.
The 491 visa will be managed entirely within the NSW Government and applications can be made directly to NSW Treasury.
NSW nominates applicants for the 491 visa to support the regional industries and economies of NSW through the provision of skilled talent.
NSW’s management of the new 491 visa aims to deliver strong, strategic outcomes for regional NSW.
NSW Government has a strong commitment to regional growth and the 491 visa will sit alongside several other government initiatives that aim to increase regional NSW’s attraction as a highly desirable place to live, work and do business.
