From January 2021, students who studied in major regional centres and other designated regional areas are eligible to apply for an extension of their current 485 visa
If you have studied anywhere other than major cities, you can obtain an extension for one year and if you have studied in regional centres you can extend your stay for two years. In order to obtain this visa, you need to be living, working or studying in relevant region for two years prior to making an application. Once you get the visa, you will still have to meet the same conditions.
You can make use of this opportunity to increase your chances of getting Australian Permanent Residency.
