The Skilled Regional visa – 887 is the second stage visa giving permanent residence to holders of Skilled Regional Provisional visas such as 489. The Subclass 887 visa is a pathway to permanent residency in Australia for skilled workers who have already fulfilled the requirements of their initial skilled regional visa such as Subclass 489 and have met the criteria for the Subclass 887 visa. It allows visa holders and their accompanying family members to live, work, and study in Australia indefinitely.
