New Canberra State Sponsorship Program process 2018

The applicants applying for Canberra Skilled Nomination Program will be able to apply for Australian Permanent Residence from November 29, 2018 onwards. The government of Canberra will look over the new Expression of Interest called ‘Canberra Matrix’ to avoid confusion with the Australian Department of Home Affairs ‘Expression of Interest.’

Any application that has already been submitted to ACT government that has not been lodged and is unpaid on 27 November 2019 will disappear from the system and applicants will not be able to access their applications thereafter.

Also, any application lodged and paid before Tuesday 27th November, 18 will be assessed under the existing guidelines.

It is said that there are around 500 available places for Australia Skilled Nominated Program Subclass 190 under Canberra State Sponsorship Program for the remaining 2018-19 financial year.
