Heavy Demand and Limited Availability of Regional Visas

Heavy Demand and Limited Availability of Regional Visas

If you are in the queue to apply for General Skilled Migration visa, you will have noted the considerable disruption occurring within the skilled regional visa subclass programs, particularly for Subclass 489 visa places. The heavy demand and limited availability for Subclass 489 places are causing these allocations to become quickly oversubscribed and the relevant authorities to stop accepting further applications, sometimes within just hours of opening.

The limited availability of SC 489 places and the processing timelines in the lead up to the 10 September 2019 cutoff date for nomination and EOI, is expected to severely limit the ability of many applicants to receive nomination approval. You need to be aware of this limitation and keep your expectation realistically.
