The Pathway to Permanent Residence: A Guide to the Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional) Visa (Subclass 191)

As a leading migration law firm, we aim to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional) visa (subclass 191), which serves as the pathway to permanent residence for eligible holders of the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) (subclass 491) and Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) (subclass 494) visas.

No Minimum Income Requirement:
It is important to note that the Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional) visa (subclass 191) does not have a minimum income requirement. Currently, there is no legislative instrument in place specifying a minimum income threshold for this visa category.

Income Assessment Requirements:
To be eligible for the subclass 191 visa, primary applicants must provide notices of assessment issued by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for three income years out of the five years of their eligible visa. If you have already lodged your application, it is vital to verify that your submission includes these three notices of assessment.

Government Commitment:
The Australian Government is dedicated to streamlining the migration system in the national interest. It aims to assist migrants who are already living and working in Australia, contributing with their skills to the nation’s growth and prosperity. The government provides clarity on their prospects for permanent residence through various visa pathways, including the subclass 191 visa.
