International graduates of South Australia accessing a work experience waiver via achieving Proficient English or Proficient Plus overall will now only be eligible to apply for a 489 provisional visa. 

Commitment to South Australia

The state nomination is for those applicants who genuinely want to settle in South Australia and hence, the applications residing interstate are not eligible to apply for South Australia state nomination.

  • Applicants who have studied or worked interstate in the last 10 years (and not in South Australia) will only be eligible for State nomination for a provisional 489 visa.
  • Applicants who have studied or worked in another state (as well as in South Australia) in the last 10 years will generally only be eligible for State nomination for a provisional 489 visa unless it is clear that their commitment is more clearly aligned to South Australia than any other Australian state or territory.  Key factors that will be taken into account will include the time spent in South Australia, the most recent Australian location an applicant spent time in, and what they were doing in these locations (i.e. study, work).
