Hi,

Can anyone tell me that my relative, who sponsors me for 491 Family Sponsored points tested visa. has to live in a designated regional area at the time of the invitation or at the time of visa application? 

Thanks a lot!

At time of invitation and when a decision is made on the application. Sponsor must be ‘usually resident’ In the regional area and they will check this.

Thanks for that. 

If we provide them my relative's rental agreement, driver license, latest utilities bills would that be enough for them? this is what you mean by saying "they will check this"? 

Thanks @paulhand

They have access to a bunch of other stuff as well as the things you mention.

They can determine through government records where their Medicaid card is registered to, who their employer is, where they are registered for task etc.

A bit like the UK and school catchment areas if you try to game the system to look like you are in region when you are not they will find out.

They always have the final option of just going to the address and knocking on the door...
