Are you a Pacific Islander who would like permanent residency in Australia?

There is a new visa pathway for you.

The Subclass 192 Pacific Engagement Visa ballot is now open for registrations until 2 August 2024.

Citizens from a number of Pacific island countries including Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Vanuatu, and Timor-Leste aged between 18-45 years of age can register their interest for a the 192 visa; a direct application for permanent residency.

Up to 3000 places will be available each financial year, split across each of the participating countries.

Some key points:

· Applicants can be in or outside Australia at the time of registration and invitation

· Family members can be included

· All applicants must meet health and character requirements, and all other visa criteria

· Invitations are issued randomly, so there is no guarantee of selection.

A registration fee of AU$25 applies to enter the ballot. If invited, separate fees for the 192 visa application will apply.
