What is the Subclass 191 visa?

To satisfy the basic criteria, applicants and their family members must meet specific public interest criteria, including factors like health, character, and security checks. Additionally, certain income-related criteria apply.

The subclass 191 visa has a specific stream for applicants who have held regional provisional visas such as subclass 491 and 494. To qualify, applicants must have substantially complied with the conditions of their previous regional provisional visa and any subsequent bridging visas. Compliance with condition 8579 is also essential unless exempted.
