State wise visa allocation for 2023-24 is in place now. The allocations for subclass 190 and subclass 491 is approximately one third of that of the ones in previous year. This is a drastic drop down, this is possibly due to the applications on hand with department to clear out the backlogs. However, alike last year, the department might revise and increase allocations.
But, we would recommend to apply for visa as soon as possible as the priority could be given to the ones who applied early and which will possibly mean grants faster.
Few states already are open and accepting applications from different states as well as from overseas.
We'd recommend you to book a PR pathway Zoom consultation with our Australian Registered Migration Agent (MARN1572961) via this link: https://www.racc.net.au/booking-calendar/pr-pathways-and-visa-options-1
This is a comparison of state wise subclass 190 and subclass 491 allocations, which has huge implications. This indicates whether you need to consider regional migration or not, how many possible applicants could be there and what could be the cut-off points. This being stated, there are also states for which you don't have to stay in regional area to apply for subclass 491. Also, states like Western Australia allows eligible applicants to apply from any Australia states as well as from overseas.
