Please note, visa subclass 489 is now replaced by subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa . This new visa subclass 491 has a better point test and comes with two streams - sponsorship by a family member living in any designated regional area State or Territory sponsored stream. All the applicants applying under this visa subclass 491 must age 45 years or below while applying, must have a positive skills assessment and meet the minimum points requirements.
