Australia introduces new changes to the Skilled Migration Program

Australia's construction industry is thriving, with cranes dotting the skyline and workers busy at construction sites

In the 16th of November 2019, the Australian government officially introduced two new skilled regional visas, first of which is the new Skilled Worker Regional Visa (subclass 491) which will replace the Skilled Regional Visa (subclass 489), and the 2nd visa is the Skilled Employer Sponsored visa (subclass 494) which will substitute the current Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa (subclass 187). 

Additionally, the Australian government has amended the pointing system structure related to all points tested skilled migration visas. 

Other changes were introduced as well such as increasing the regional migration planning levels for the upcoming year.
