No, you cannot apply for visa 190 with 55 points.
As per the latest immigration rules, an applicant must score at least 65 points to be eligible to apply for Australian permanent residency. The points are calculated for age, educational qualification, work experience, relevant skills, language proficiency and other factors.
From July 1, 2018, The Australian government has increased the immigration pass points from 60 to 65. Therefore, no applicant would be allowed to apply for Australia PR with 55 points.
The visa allows you to migrate to Australia and live in that particular state/territory for a period of 2 years. After completion of this tenure, you can move anywhere in Australia.
Although, this condition is not a mandate but it reflects your ‘ethical duty’ towards that state which has nominated you.
Although, if you have 60 points and are falling short with 5 points, you can still apply for visa 190 as you can get additional 5 points of state nomination that constitutes your eligibility score of 65 points.
This means that upon receiving a nomination from a state or territory in Australia, 5 points will be added to your immigration score.
To claim 5 points of state/territory nomination, we suggest you to follow the below mentioned step-wise procedure:
- As per state’s Migration plan, each state/territory maintains a list of occupations which are facing labour shortages in the market. Make sure that your Job profile is listed there.
- After confirming presence of your Job profile, submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to DIBP.
An expression of interest is a type of deceleration that you are interested to migrate to Australia.
In your EOI, you need to mention that state/territory you are seeking nomination from.
- If found fit, you may get an Invitation To Apply (ITA). Additional 5 points will be added to your present immigration score.
- Your approval on state you have showed your formal interest in, by submitting EOI, is subject to:
a) Occupation demand of your Job profile in that state/territory
b) Occupation ceiling of your Job profile in that state/territory
After receiving your ITA, you must apply for Australia Permanent Residency Visa within 60 days.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
