Streamlining Visa Approvals: Australia’s Focus on Skilled Workers in Regional Areas

Australia has recently updated its visa processing system, especially for skilled workers in regional areas. This change aims to help regional businesses in Australia by speeding up visa approvals for skilled workers they sponsor.

The Department of Home Affairs has made it a top priority to process employer-sponsored visas for all kinds of jobs in regional Australia. This move is designed to address the critical shortages in various industries and sectors in these areas.

Visas like the Temporary Skill Shortage (Subclass 482), Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 186), and Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) (Subclass 494) are now processed faster, especially for jobs in regional Australia. However, the processing speed for healthcare and education visas in regional areas remains the same, as these were already a priority.

In the 2022–23 period, the Department of Home Affairs issued 6,466 Temporary Skill Shortage visas in the health care and social assistance industry and over 1,060 visas in the education and training sector. These sectors continue to see the highest demand for skilled visa applications.
