Australia Subclass Regional 491 Visas State Nomination

The newly Skilled Work Regional Subclass 491 visa allows skilled workers with their families to live and work in Regional areas or territory for up to 5 years time period. The 491 visa offers a pathway to permanent residency after completing 3 years.
There are two streams under the Subclass 491 visa as family sponsored and state nominated visa. Under family sponsored visa, it requires a relative living in regional territory of Australia who is willing to sponsor you and occupation must be listed under MLTSSL (medium and long term strategic skill list). While the sate nominated visa is often considered as easier because of longer list available and you only need to score a minimum immigration points to get an invitation.
Aspiring applicants are required to check the information carefully to meet all the requirements for nomination.
