Australia PR Pathway for Accountants: 489 Visa under Orana region

Regional Development Australia (RDA) recently updated the Orana Skilled Occupation List, implementing some changes to the application process. The changes, announced on 31st July 2018, have simplified some confusions among applicants. The list includes some accountant occupations:

  • Finance Manager
  • Accountant (General)
  • Management Accountant
  • External Auditor
  • Internal Auditor

However, as the invitation ceiling for Accountants is high, it has become a cause for concern amongst accountants concerning their Permanent Residency. Aussizz Group has come up with a novel solution for such professionals: Apply for Skilled Regional Provisional Visa (subclass 489) under the Orana region. The Subclass 489 enables you to live and work in regional Australia for 4 years. After spending 2 years on Subclass 489, you will also be eligible to apply for Permanent Residency, provided you satisfy the criteria.

Your subclass 489 application has to include personal and work-experience details. Every detail helps you gain valuable points through SkillSelect. The rule of thumb is the more details you provide, the better your prospects are with immigration authority processing your application. Last year alone, few applicants received invitations from the government. Invitations, however, have increased now with many applicants collecting as many as 80 points or more on the basis of SkillSelect. On the flip side, there are more rounds this year with a mere 5 invitations issued per round.

Evaluation of points

To qualify for 489 visas, applicants have to first lodge their applications on the basis of SkillSelect to get invitations by the authority. Invitations are subject to which applicants are eligible for pathways to permanent residency in any state/territory of Australia.

For invitation purposes, the entire process to lodge your application has to be completed within 60 days. An invitation will lapse if there is a delay beyond said period with your application getting rejected. Ensure that you complete every documentation and do it effectively in the stipulated time.

Along with personal and work experience details, you have to lodge an Expression of Interest so that your visa application gets processed, meet desired scores thereby getting an invite/sponsorship by specific state/territory government, being proficient in English language to meeting character and health insurance requirements.

SkillSelect requirement

Different professionals have different SkillSelect requirements. If 75 points is the slab fixed for IT and engineering professionals, 80 points is the score allotted to accountants. The invitation ceiling for accountants, especially, has become more challenging with 5 applicants selected in each round.

One of the places in Australia where you can build your career as an accountant is the Orana region located in New South Wales. Pursue on your dream with a promising career as there are abundant accounting jobs that you can choose from in the state’s diverse region, which caters to needs of over 120,000 people.

You can avail of sponsorship benefits from either state or territory government.
