Three new Australia Visas have been announced and it is inclusive of one Permanent Residence Visa. The Subclass 491 and Subclass 494 are the 2 new Regional Visas that will come in to effect from November 2019.
The Skilled Regional Subclass 191 Permanent Residence Visa will become operational from November 16, 2022. It is aimed at bringing in more number of skilled immigrant workers to regional Australia, as quoted by the SBS.
David Coleman the Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs Minister has released an explanatory statement. This is regarding the New Skilled Regional Visas Migration Amendment Regulations 2019. It states that the new Subclass 191 Visa imitates numerous current general requirements for PR Visa. This includes character, health and security requirements.

The Federal government has also closed 2 Australia Visas:
• Regional Migration Sponsored Scheme Subclass 187 Visa
• Regional Provisional Skilled Subclass 489 Visa
The Subclass 187 Visa has been replaced by the newly created Employer Sponsored Regional Subclass 494 Visa. The Subclass 489 Visa has been replaced by the Subclass 491 Visa. The former was among renowned Australia Visas for skilled workers inclined to move to regions in Australia.
The Employer Sponsored Subclass 494 Regional Visa will help regional Australia employers to recruit overseas skilled workers. This is through the Labour and Employer-Sponsored Agreement.
