BlogOrana (NSW) Reopens Subclass 489 Visa – Find out the details!

Orana region, located in New South Wales, has been gaining the status of hot destination for potential migrants. Although RDA Orana has now been closed for 489 applications, the migration team however has been working tirelessly to develop an updated and improved Expression of Interest (EOI) processes so as to ensure the best, highly skilled and most skillful candidates are recommended and forwarded by the RDA Orana for nomination by the State of New South Wales.

In retrospect to this, the RDA Orana has been keeping a keen eye on the number of potential candidates who are living in the Orana region for quite a substantial period now and are also actively promoting to the economic and social welfare, wellbeing and progress of the region. These communities were rather disappointed when the region had reached its maximum number of intake last year. The migration team is looking forward now to ensure full transparency to make sure these candidates have the opportunity to submit their EOI before others.

It is to be noted that potential applicants who meet the below mentioned criteria can submit their Expression of interest. The EOIs can be submitted between June 1st and June 14th inclusive.
