Tasmania – Easy and Swiftest route to Australia PR Visa

One always wonders, which is the easiest pathway to get an Australian Visa? Here is the answer to those peculiar question – Tasmania as the state offers arguably the most convenient pathway to permanent residency. Tasmania is relatively easier, whether you apply through entrepreneur category or skilled worker category because the government encourages applicants to settle in those unpopular places to invest and stimulate the economy.

To mark the eligibility for state sponsored visas, one must meet both the ‘Department of Immigration and Border Protection’ and the ‘Tasmanian Government state nomination’ requirements. These include skills assessment against specified occupations, having a recognized level of English language abilities, and meeting a minimum score on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s ‘Points Test’.

Regional visas:

One might feel dejected as their area of specialization does not fall under the government’s Skilled Occupation List (SOL), but Tasmania has provided answer to the problem. Tasmania has its classification as ‘regional’ which means that applicants who are willing to live and work in this State are eligible for a number of regional visas.

  • There are two most popular regional visas i.e. temporary Subclass 489 visa and the permanent Subclass 187 visa.
  • The Subclass 489 visa is a temporary State sponsored visa that allows the visa holder to live and work in a regional area. It is an excellent pathway towards permanent residency for those who cannot apply for a permanent visa immediately.
  • The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa 187 has comparatively less restrictive eligibility requirements than many other visas due to the govt’s intention to fill shortages in regional areas on a long-term basis. 187 visa holders are required to work for their sponsoring employer for two years after the grant of their visa.

State Sponsorship for Skilled Visas:

State or Territory sponsorship is essential for the 489 visa and its permanent counterpart, the Subclass 190 visa. Tasmania’s State sponsorship guidelines are some of the most generous in Australia and can be attained by signifying the eligibility. The benefit of State sponsorship can be measured by provision that it gives the candidate full access to the 489 or 190 Visa:

  • If you are able to obtain State sponsorship for the 190 visa, this visa is processed relatively quickly and will give you permanent residency without any conditions attached.
  • If you obtain State sponsorship for the 489 visa, you will receive an excellent pathway to the affordable permanent 887 visa.

Tasmania holds many natural treasures and opportunities for visitors and permanent residents. The state has some of Australia’s most affordable housing and offers short commutes, work-life balance, family-friendly communities and business and employment opportunities.
