Australia Skilled Nominated Visa Subclass 190


The Skill Select State Nominated Subclass 190 visa is a points based Australia PR Visa for skilled workers who want to work and live in Australia. However, an applicant must have been nominated by an Australian state or territory to apply for visa 190. Eligible applicants must obtain a qualifying score of 60 in the skilled migration points test.

This is an Australian State Nominated permanent visa which requires you to be a skilled worker nominated by a Territory or State Government. Each State/Territory maintains a list of occupations that are in short supply.

The application depends on the applicant meeting the criteria for eligibility, and if accepted the applicant is expected to live for at least 2 years inside the State / Territory that nominated them for the visa. You can include secondary applicants with the application.

How To Apply for Subclass 190 Visa?

The State Nominated Visa (subclass 190) is based on a three stage application process:

  • Stage 1
    The first stage of the application process involves completing a skills assessment with the relevant government body. Your skills assessment enables the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) to judge if you have the required level of skill in your chosen occupation to practice in Australia.

  • Stage 2
    Once you have received a positive skills assessment, you will need to submit an Expression of Interest through Skill Select. You can do this in or outside Australia. You will then also need to apply for state sponsorship with an Australian state / territory. This will require that you meet the sponsorship requirements and have work experience in a position listed on one of their State Migration Plans.

    Following are the state nomination programs for the workers who are highly skilled and qualified, and those who can meet the skill shortage of the particular state/territory in which they wish to apply for:
    1. Canberra Nomination Program
    2. New South Wales Nomination Program
    3. Northern Territory Nomination Program
    4. Queensland Nomination Program
    5. South Australia Nomination Program
    6. Tasmania Nomination Program
    7. Victoria Nomination Program
    8. Western Australia Nomination Program

  • Stage 3
    Once you have been issued an Invitation To Apply (ITA), you can continue to the DIBP stage of the application, where you can submit your final, complete application to be approved by DIBP so your visa can be granted. Priority processing arrangements apply to this visa. They determine the order in which the department considers applications regardless of when they have been lodged.
