Regional Employer Sponsored
SC 494

The Regional Employer Sponsored – Subclass 494 is a temporary visa program that allows skilled workers and their families to live and work in regional areas of Australia for up to five years. To be eligible for this visa, applicants must have a job offer from a regional employer in Australia, and their occupation must be listed on the relevant skilled occupation list. The employer must also demonstrate that they have been unable to fill the position with an Australian worker and that they are offering market salary rates and conditions of employment. This visa program aims to support the economic growth and development of regional areas in Australia by addressing skills shortages and attracting skilled workers to these areas. The Regional Employer Sponsored – Subclass 494 visa holders may also be eligible to apply for permanent residency through the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme pathway.
