The amendments in this bill give effect to the policy holders of these provisional skilled regional visas have the same access to welfare programs and government services as permanent visa holders. This is also done to ensure that provisional skilled regional visa holders are not deprived of the benefits as compared to holders of permanent skilled visas for people to work in metropolitan area.

Australia Visa 491 and Subclass 494 will be introduced in November 2019 to invite qualified migrants to come and settle in the particular regional area of the country for stipulated time period.
