Hi everyone, this time, we are going to give you updated information about the current regulations in Australia.

Do you know what a “regional area” is?

Maybe some of you who are currently reading this article understand it and some of you do not.

Firstly, we will discuss the meaning of regional area. Regional area in Australia is the definition used by the Australian Government to promote some of the Australian sector or area, and the main purpose of which is of migration.

For your information, not all regions in Australia are classified as designated regional. There are only several areas included in the regional category and one of these is Perth, Western Australia.

Perth is a city that is famous for its natural beauty and the cultural diversity of its people. In addition, Perth also offers a good education system, where many international students are interested and want to continue their education,

So which areas are included in the designated region in Perth?

Designated Regional Areas in Perth, Western Australia

The designated regional areas of Australia is divided into 2 (two) categories, with details:

  • Cities and major regional centers
  • Regional centers and other regional areas

The Australian Government has named Perth as one of the regional areas and this has been in effect since 16 November 2019. This provides many benefits for international students who want to start their studies in Perth. Are you one of those that are interested?

For you who plan to study in regional areas in Perth, you will be able to apply for several visas after you the completion of your studies, for instance, the Temporary Graduate visa or skilled visa, particularly the Skilled Work Regional Visa (Subclass 491).

Skilled Work Regional Visa (Subclass 491) allows its holder to stay in Australia for 5 years from the date the Department of Home Affairs grants the visa. This visa also allows its holder to live, work and study in a designated region of Australia, travel to and from Australia as many times as its holder wants, while the visa is still valid.
