Schedule 1 – Changes to certain skilled visas

Schedule 1 to the legislative instrument makes amendments to:

·         close the Subclass 489 (Skilled – Regional (Provisional)) visa to primary applicants for a first provisional visa;

·         introduce the Subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa, a points-tested visa for applicants sponsored by a State or Territory government agency or sponsored by a family member residing in a designated regional area;

·         amend the points test in Schedule 6D to the Migration Regulations to award:

o   15 points for nomination by a State or Territory government agency or sponsorship by a family member residing in regional Australia, to live and work in regional Australia;

o   10 points for a skilled spouse or de facto partner;

o   10 points for certain Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) qualifications;

o   5 points for a spouse or de facto partner with ‘competent English’;

o   10 points for applicants without a spouse or de facto partner; and

·         make a number of minor technical amendments.


Schedule 3 – New permanent visa

Schedule 3 to the legislative instrument makes amendments to:

·         introduce a new permanent visa, the Subclass 191 (Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional)) visa (Subclass 191) from 16 November 2022;

·         provide that the new Subclass 191 may only be applied for by holders of the new Subclass 491 and Subclass 494 visa;

·         detail eligibility criteria for the grant of a Subclass 191 visa, including that the applicant must (for primary applicants who held a Subclass 491 or Subclass 494 visa at the time of application):

-        have earned a minimum  taxable income for three years as the holder of a regional provisional visa ; and

-        have complied with the conditions of the regional provisional visa; in particular, including that the holder must live, work and study in a designated regional area of Australia.


For example, the new subclass 491 and Subclass 494 visas include requirements related to the skills of applicants and the type of jobs they can be nominated for (if the visa has a requirement to be nominated by an employer), age, English language and work experience requirements and requirements that the relevant occupation be on a list of regional skills in long-term need and meet minimum salary levels.  These requirements generally reflect the current requirements for the equivalent visas and are reasonable and proportionate to ensure that Australia’s skilled migration programs continue to operate with integrity and support Australia’s economic needs, as well as helping ensure that the visa applicant has the necessary skills to function effectively in their job and receive fair and appropriate remuneration.

The amendments introduce a revised points system for the subclass 491 visa as well as existing General Skilled Migration visas.  Points are awarded for attributes that are linked with the applicant’s ability to make the greatest economic contribution, as the key purpose of the skilled migration program is to maximise the economic benefits of migration to Australia.  The changes to the points test are to introduce:

·         more points for having a skilled spouse or de facto partner (10 points);

·         more points for applicants nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by a family member residing in regional Australia (15 points);

·         more points for having certain STEM qualifications (10 points);

·         points for applicants who do not have a spouse or de facto partner (10 points); and

·         points for applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who has competent English (5 points).



The additional points for single applicants will ensure a single person with identical skills to a primary applicant who has a skilled spouse or de facto partner will not be displaced in the points test. This measure is based on a recommendation from Migrant Intake into Australia.  The extra points for partners with competent English incentivise couples as a unit to improve their English competency in order to be more competitive in points test rankings.  The additional points ensure Australia is able to select the best and brightest skilled migrants for its valuable migration places – single or partnered.

This will ensure that primary applicants without a partner (singles) will be ranked equally to other primary applicants who have the same human capital attributes. If all other points claims are equal, invitations for points tested visas will be ranked by the Migration Points Test as described below:

·         First – primary applicants with a skilled spouse or de facto partner

·         Equal First – primary applicants without a spouse or de facto partner

·         Second - Primary applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who can demonstrate competent English but does not have the skills for skilled partner points (age and skills)

·         Third -  Primary applicants with a partner who is ineligible for either competent English or Skilled partner points. These applicants will be ranked below all other cohorts, if all other points claims are equal.


Item 40 – Part 6D.11 of Schedule 6D (at the end of the table)
