For five years, skilled workers and their families can live, study, and work in designated regional areas under the Skilled Work Regional 491 visa. This visa allows those with in-demand skills in the Australian labor market to reside in regional Australia.

South Australia’s Skills Migration program has opened for the financial year 2021–2022, and applications for 190 and 491 nominations are now being accepted. This financial year, South Australia has been allotted 2,600 nomination places for 190 and 491, which is 600 more places than the previous financial year.
