This is a list of the Designated Areas for the purposes of applying for the Skilled Nominated or Sponsored (Provisional) Subclass 489 Visa.
If you have a relative who is ordinarily resident in one of the areas below, they may be eligible to sponsor you for a Skilled Regional Sponsored visa.
Once your visa is granted, you must live in a designated area, though this need not be in the same postcode or state as your sponsor.
Each state and territory has its own list of occupations, requirements and processes you must follow.
More information about the requirements and processes on how Australian states or territories nominate applicants is available.
