Living in the Orana Region
Step 1- Notification of Home Affairs Visa Decision
Inform the RDA Orana Skilled Migration team when your visa is granted by email and attach a copy of the visa grant notification.
Step 2- Move to the Orana Region
As part of your application for NSW State nomination through RDA Orana, you sign a declaration agreeing that you will relocate to the Orana. RDA Orana expects you to meet your obligations to live in the Orana region for at least two years for subclass 489 and three years for 491 visa from the date of visa grant/ permanent arrival in Australia.
RDA Orana is developing a Settlement Services package to assist those moving to the Orana region and will notify all applicants when this becomes available.
Step 3- Ongoing communication with RDA Orana
As part of our ongoing obligations to the nominating body, RDA Orana is required to maintain long term contact with our visa applications. We do this through a series of surveys. These surveys will commence, at 6 month intervals for 2 years, from the time you are invited to apply for your subclass 489 or 491 visa.
