How do I choose a state in Australia for Visa 190 Subclass ?

Australia Visa 190 is a state/territory nomination visa.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.

To choose a state in Australia for 190 visa subclass, following is the 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.

How to select state for visa 190

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).

- 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 Residence Visa within 60 days.
