How is Subclass 190 Visa different from Subclasses 189 and 491 Visas? (189 vs.190 vs. 491)

Where you want to move to Australia on a General Skilled Migration (GSM) program, then you have a few visa options. Nonetheless, you need to choose the one that is quite suitable to your qualification. Most of the prospective applicants are confused for they hardly have any clue of how to find the appropriate one. The following information gives clear differentiation of the three most popular visas, such as the subclass 189, subclass 190 and subclass 491 visas.

Category: When the subclass 189 visa is a Skilled Independent permanent visa, the Subclass 190 visa is a Skilled Nominated permanent visa. The subclass 491 visa, on the other hand, is a Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa.

Points-Based: All the three categories of visas are points-based and an applicant must attain at least 65 points to qualify for the ‘invitation to apply’.

Permanent Residence: With a subclass 189 or a subclass 190 visa, you are allowed to stay and work in Australia as permanent residents. Nevertheless, a subclass 491 visa is a temporary visa, which permits you to live and work in regional Australia for 5 years from the date of the grant of the visa.

Skilled Occupation List: The ‘Combined current list of eligible skilled occupations’ contains Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). When the Subclass 190 Visa  occupations are found in MLTSSL and STSOL lists, the subclass 189 has its occupations listed on the only MLTSSL. The subclass 491 visa has an extensive occupation list, with its occupations listed on the MLTSSL, STSOL and Regional.

Include Family: You can include family members for all the three visa categories.

Visa Cost: The visa costs the same for all the three types of visa.

Visa Process:  Stage 1: As for the visa categories 189, 190 and 491, you need to have a suitable skills assessment, and Stage 2: You are required to submit your EOI; nonetheless, the subclass 190 visa asks for the state or territory nomination before the submission of the EOI, while the subclass 491, requires you to be either nominated by the state or territory or sponsored by an eligible relative before lodging the EOI.

Processing Time: It is viewed that the processing time of a skilled visa varies owing to the individual circumstances. However, stages 1 and 2 depends on the occupation and points scored against the claims made against the questions in the EOI, as well as the state nomination or sponsorship. Stage 3 is submitting your visa application, which takes an average time of 3 to 6 months.

Stay and Work: With the subclass 189 visa, you can stay and work anywhere in Australia indefinitely. The subclass 190 visa also allows you to stay in Australia permanently, but you have to give an undertaking for residing in the sponsored state. The subclass class 491 visa allows you to stay and work in a designated region in Australia for 5 years.

Australian Citizenship: The visa categories 189 and 190 allow you to become an Australian citizen, in case you are eligible. This is not the case with the 491 visa for it is a provisional one and if eligible, allows you to apply for an Australian PR.

 

How Much Does 190 Visa Cost?

With the Subclass 190 visa application, you need to pay AUD 4,045 as 190 Visa fee for the main applicant. If you have family members applying for the visa with you, then you need to incur an extra 190 visa cost for each member. For the purpose, you can use the 190 visa fee calculator to know how much it will cost for your visa. There are additional costs that depend on your circumstances.

 

How Long Does It Take to Get a Subclass 190 Visa?

The Subclass 190 Visa applications received are assessed on a case-by-case basis; therefore, the actual 190 visa processing time varies depending on an applicant’s circumstances, which are mentioned below:

  • whether you have filed the 190 application form with all the details and the relevant supporting documents
  • how promptly did you respond to any clarifications or additional information required
  • for any 190 visa health checks required, how long did you take to complete the same
  • how long you took to receive and submit the additional information from any external agency, concerning character or health
  • depends on the number of 190 visa places available in the immigration program

Notwithstanding the above, the processing time for the 190 Australia PR visa is 6 to 8 months. You can expect the case officer (CO) contacting you for any support documents within the first 3 months. In such a case, your 190 visa Australia will not move further until you submit the requested documents.

You cannot find any state government in Australia releasing its occupation planning levels. Nevertheless, you can check the Colour-coded system on the State Nominated Occupations List. Those occupations coloured green to show they are available, while those with blue and red colours indicated ‘low availability’ and ‘special conditions’ respectively.

 

I am a prospective applicant for South Australia’s skilled immigration program. Can my volunteer work experience be considered eligible for the skilled work experience requirement?

In case you have new details to include to improve your chances, then you can submit a new application for 190 state nomination.

 

Am I permitted to move from the nominated state to another state?

Being a nominee of a particular state, you have agreed to live and work in the state, putting all the reasonable efforts; however, the decision to move to another state is yours.

The WA state nomination generally asks for a contract of full-time employment, with a minimum of 6 or 12 months based on the stream you apply for when you apply for the state nomination. For instance, where a state nomination through the General stream asks for a 12-month contract, the same for the Graduate stream insists on a 6-month contract period. In such a case, if you apply for the state nomination on the 1st of January 2020, then your employment contract must end on January 1, 2021, for the General stream and July 1, 2020, for the Graduate stream.

 

How long is skilled state nomination valid for?

Conclusion

 

The Subclass 190 Visa is meant for those who qualify for it, with a state or territory nomination. Besides, it also asks for the relevant occupation listed on the extensive skilled occupation lists, such as MLTSSL and STSOL and meeting all the eligibility requirements mentioned above. This Australia Skilled 190 Visa is a permanent visa which allows you to stay and work in Australia; pursue an education; enroll in the healthcare scheme; sponsor your family members; access some social security payment; and apply for Australian citizenship, if eligible. 

 

The skilled nominated 190 visa requires a state or territory to sponsor you after viewing your 190 visa application via Expression of Interest (EOI). Where you score the highest points, you get into the pool and receive an ‘invitation to apply’ for the subclass 190 visa from the relevant state or territory. Nevertheless, the invitation round for the Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 visa is run once a month and it is processed by the Department of Home Affairs on a priority basis.

 

The federal government, in the meanwhile, is looking at the occupations that need to be added to and removed from the list. The states and territories will come up with the requirements after this. It is presumed that the federal budget in October will throw more light to it.
