What are the Designated Areas of Australia?
This list shows the designated Areas of Australia. If you have a relative sponsoring you for a Skilled Regional Sponsored visa they need to be living in one of those areas. When your visa is granted, you also need to live in a designated area. Your area does not need to be in the same area your sponsor is living in.
