Dear Friends,

I have an eligible relative who can sponsor me under the 491 visa. He is settled at Queensland(regional area). If I choose this option and reach Australia, can I switch the region if job hunting is difficult there? (shifting to another regional area). Or do I need to stick on to the region where my relative belongs to? Please respond if you know the details.

Wait for the official announcement and disclosure. In the original subclass 489-FS (on which new one is based on), the applicant was free to move within any designated area, not bound to his/her sponsor's.
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
