Residence in a Regional Area
You have been in Australia holding a provisional skilled visa for the last 2 years. During this time,
you must have lived in a regional or low populuation growth area of Australia (if sponsored by a
State or Territory Government) or a Designated Area if sponsored by an Australian relative.
You have worked for at least 12 months in Australia – this experience need not be in a skilled
occupation, but must be full time (at least 35 hours per week) and must be in a regional area.
