The Australian State and Territories have been opening their visa nomination programs lately over the last month with many new interesting changes. The Australian government authorities are also working on the upcoming closure of visa skilled regional subclass 489.
Below mentioned are important updates to some of the Australian states/territories:
The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has issued a total of 523 invitations in July and same has been updated on ‘Canberra Matrix’. The state gives preference to those who are already living and working in Canberra for longer period of time.
New South Wales (NSW) introduced online system to show the availability of the nominated occupations. The system indicates the likely number of invitations and not an indication on the number of people invited.
What are the eligibility criteria to apply for visa 190?
NSW has also mentioned additional requirements to certain occupations on their Priority Skilled Occupation List requiring applicants to be living in NSW and employed in NSW for at least one year in the nominated occupation under 190 visa nsw.
Northern Territory processing time for offshore applications is taking around 6 months.
Queensland has reopened their Business Migration Program. Though, the skilled migration program is still under review and is expected to reopen shortly.
South Australia has increased the ‘high points’ pathway to 85 points on 26 July. Some occupations have already been excluded from this pathway. The occupations listed on South Australia nominated list are also closing at a rapid place.
Tasmania will focus on inviting applicants through visa subclass 489 prior to closure of this visa. They encourage all applicants for this stream to ensure they lodge nomination by early August so that the applications are processed before its closing date 10 September.
The Western Australia Skilled Migration Occupation List remains restricted to medical occupations while the Graduates list offers a wider range of occupations particularly those who have completed PhD studies in the state.

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.
