Immigration update: Australian states open skilled visa nomination programs for 2021-2022

Australian jurisdictions receive quotas from the federal government each year, based on which the states and territories nominate skilled and business migrants for the Skilled Nom­inated visa Subclass 190 and the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa Subclass 491.


Highlights:

  • NSW nomination for Subclass 491 is now by invitation only
  • Victoria introduces major changes to its state nominated program
