No more invites for Australia Subclass 489 after 10 Sep

Australia immigration

The Subclass 489 (Skilled Regional Provisional) Visa will soon be eliminated and replaced by the Subclass 491 Visa. The Subclass 491 Visa will be effective from 16th November 2019. 

10th September 2019 will be the last day for invitations to be issued for the Subclass 489 Visa. 

There are two categories under which invitations for the Subclass 489 are issued: 

  • Sponsorship by a state or territory in Australia 
  • Sponsorship by an eligible family member living in Australia 

The 10th September 2019 deadline will be applicable to both the above categories, as per SBS News. 

The last date to lodge an EOI (Expression of Interest) for the Subclass 489 Visa would also be 10th September 2019. 

The last day to submit a visa application for the Subclass489 for people who have been invited would be 15th November 2019. 

There is a 67day gap between the last invitation date and the last day for visa submission. This should no way prove to be a hindrance because normally SkillSelect invitations are only valid for 60 days. 

Australia will start accepting EOIs for the Subclass 491 Visa from 16th November 2019. 

States and Territories would also be able to nominate overseas workers from 16th November onwards. Invitations would also be issued after this date only.
