Do you have any documented examples? The reason I am asking is that in the grant letter there is no mention of state or specific regional areas and it simply says to stay and live in regional area in AU with the list of all areas in a link.

Also, I have seen a few examples on forums where people moved after obtaining a release letter and few MARA agents also said that we can move to any regional area. Looking for a first-hand experience of somebody done that successfully.

Condition:
While you are in Australia you must live, work and study only in an area we specify as a regional or low-population growth metropolitan area of Australia.

When i checked the areas listed in above site, that includes all the regional-low population areas of entire Australia.

Question1:
Since my visa was sponsored by NSW, i can work/studay on the regional areas of NSW only OR i can work in any regional areas specified in other states too?

Queston2:
Me and my wife are planning to work in Australia. I have my current company branches in australia. But branches are all in city areas like sydney,canberra,melbourne etc. So if i allow my wife to work in regional area , can i work in non-regional area? ( we both have 489 visa).
I am not an expert but as per my knowledge
your answers are as following
Answer-1
No you have to work,stay and study in specific participating regional areas of NSW from which you are being invited.
Incase if you want to move to the other regional areas then you need to prove to the region authority where you are going to live that there is no sufficient employment in your area for your occupation and if they approve then you can move to other regional area however chances are 1% only.

Answer-2
No you both need to work in regional areas
Thank

But the specified regional areas are not mentioned anywhere in the grant letter or VEVO app. It simply says stay and work in regional area.

Do you know someone who tried this and got refused? Is there any place where I can check on how many applied and how many approved to come to 1% figure?

If regional Visa gives flexibility to move to other regions then everyone will move to Adelaide and no one will stay in small towns like sunshine coast

Thanks for the details. If you don't mind, is it possible to share more details on what process she followed? I am in the same boat with QLD grant in hand however I can find more job opportunities in Adelaide compared to QLD. In fact, I have lined up one interview already while being offshore from an organization operating from Adelaide.

The details will immensely help me in planning my move.

Mate just consult 2-3 reputable MARA agents and they should be able to give an evidence-based answer.

I've heard of people with a 489 grant letter similar to yours that have moved to other approved areas and got a 887 without issues - and others who have had specific regional areas listed on their 489.

Hi Zsu,
I think you should reconsider about this question. Visa Subclass 489 is temporary visa with a valid period of 4 years since the day you are granted. The answer should be YES.
Cheer!
