EXPERT RANKING By “SIDRA SHAHAB” – Brilliant Migration Club

We understand regional Visas well. That is why we have explored some best NSW regional areas that we think are better for the skilled migrants.


While Income and population are important. We think that there should be a balance between median income and population to find the best suburbs for skilled migrants.

Higher-income suburbs does not necessarily mean higher income opportunities in that area for regional visas.

Let’s take the example of a suburb in Victoria. “OFFICER” is a victorian suburb with postcode 3809. It has the highest income in Victoria. However, OFFICER is very close to Melbourne, its population is low too. Most people in Officer travels to Melbourne’s most established suburbs for job opportunities. It’s not necessary that the suburb, OFFICER have the greatest income opportunities for regional visa applicants. It is ranking high just because it’s close to Melbourne’s metropolitan areas and residents can easily travel to those suburbs for better income and employment opportunities.
