UPDATED New South Wales State Nomination Program
The NSW Government has announced changes to their state nomination program.
Due to the increased popularity of NSW as a skilled migration destination, NSW will no longer invite candidates who reside in another Australian state or territory to apply for NSW nomination for the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190).
If your occupation DOES have the additional requirement, you must:
· be residing in NSW for at least the last six months, and;
· have been employed in NSW for at least one year, in your nominated occupation.
If your occupation DOES NOT have the additional requirement, you must either:
· be residing in NSW, or offshore for at least the last six months, or;
· be residing and employed in NSW or offshore for at least the last one month.
This information will be carefully checked if you are invited and submit an application for NSW nomination.
NSW may vary this approach depending on the size and composition of the pool of candidates who have lodged and Expression of Interest (EOI) in SkillSelect.” Reference: https://www.business.nsw.gov.au/live-and-work-in-nsw/visas-and-immigration/Skilled-Nominated-visa-subclass-190 Discover your Australian visa options by completing our free online assessment or arranging a consultation.
