NSW Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) Nomination Guidelines

NSW Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) Nomination Guidelines

A permanent visa for points tested skilled workers who are nominated by a state or territory government agency.

NSW uses a selection-based invitation process to ensure that NSW nominees are aligned to the skills needs of the state’s economy. You cannot directly apply.

NSW Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190) is highly competitive due to the high demand, and the limited number of places available.

Consequently, we strongly recommend you consider all migration pathways and visa options available.

Invitation rounds

Invitation rounds occur ongoing throughout the Australian financial year. There are no set dates, and they are not announced beforehand. NSW cannot advise the date of upcoming NSW invitation rounds by phone or email.

Minimum eligibility

To receive nomination for a Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa, you must meet the following minimum eligibility requirements:

SkillSelect point score

You must be eligible to claim at least 65 points in your SkillSelect EOI. Please refer to the Home Affairs points calculator to see what points you are eligible to claim.

Age

You must be under 45 years of age to apply for the Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa.

English language

You must have at least a competent level of English (or equivalent).

If you are a citizen of the USA, UK, Canada, Republic of Ireland or New Zealand you are not required to complete an English assessment.

Residency

You must be currently residing in NSW and either be:

  • currently employed in NSW where your employment meets the standard for claiming skilled employment in your nominated occupation, or
    have genuinely resided in NSW for the past three months

Occupation and employment

You must hold a valid skills assessment in an occupation that exactly matches an occupation on the NSW subclass 190 visa occupation list.

You are not required to be currently, or previously, employed in NSW in your occupation to be eligible for NSW nomination.

Key steps for NSW Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190) Nomination

1 Submit an Expression of Interest

Submit an EOI in SkillSelect, selecting either ‘NSW’ or ‘Any’ as your desired state.

You do not need to contact the NSW Government after you have submitted your EOI. You will only receive correspondence from NSW if you are invited to apply.

Be aware that most candidates will not be invited to apply for NSW nomination as the number of candidates far exceeds the places available.

Please see our skilled visa FAQs website to see what employment you are eligible to claim in your EOI. 

2 Be invited to apply

NSW uses a ranking-based invitation process – you cannot directly apply for NSW nomination.

NSW will not issue invitations on the basis of visas expiring, losing points or eligibility, or living and working in NSW.

3 Read your invitation email

Your invitation email contains lots of useful information about how to successfully apply for NSW nomination, including how to troubleshoot common problems. The email is sent from noreply@salesforce.com on behalf of skilled.migration@treasury.nsw.gov.au. You are responsible for ensuring you can receive your invitation email – invitations will not be reissued.

4 Gather your documents

Gather the required documents to support your EOI points claims and your evidence of NSW residency.

5 Apply

Apply for NSW nomination by accessing the invitation link emailed to you within 14 days. Invitation links are sent to the email address contained in your SkillSelect EOI.

How invitation rounds work

Invitation rounds occur ongoing throughout the Australian financial year. There are no set dates, and they are not announced beforehand.

In an invitation round, EOIs in are ranked within an occupation by:

  1. Point score,
  2. English proficiency, then
  3. Years of skilled work experience in your nominated occupation.

The highest ranking EOIs, up to the number of places available for a given occupation, are generally issued an invitation to apply. When an EOI was submitted or amended, does not affect its ranking.

NSW will not respond to requests for the date of upcoming invitation rounds.

Because of the fluid nature of the NSW SkillSelect candidate pool, we cannot predict what point score/English score/work experience will be sufficient to be invited in future invitation rounds.

Candidates will not be prioritised on the basis of visas expiring, losing points or eligibility, or living and working in NSW.

act 491 / 190 nomination guidelines

ACT 491 / 190 Nomination Guidelines January 2021

ACT 491 / 190 Nomination Guidelines

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) offers Territory nomination  to Canberra Residents under the following skilled migration streams:

• Skilled Work Regional (provisional) subclass 491 visa.

• Skilled Nominated (permanent) subclass 190 visa.

Before applying for ACT nomination, you must complete the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs) SKILLSELECT and meet the Home Affairs points test (currently 65 points).

Applying for ACT nomination is a two stage process:

  1. You must formally express an interest in applying for ACT nomination by completing a score-based ‘Canberra Matrix’ where you are allocated points against demonstrated economic contribution or benefit and/or a genuine commitment to be part of the ACT community. You can select either ACT 491 nomination or ACT 190 nomination.  The highest ranked candidates in each stream will then be selected and invited to apply for ACT nomination. There is not guarantee that your Matrix score will be ranked as the demand for ACT nomination far exceeds the number of nomination places available each year.
  2. If you are invited to apply for ACT nomination, you must complete and submit the online application (and pay the service fee) within 14 days. You must attach the required documents to evidence your eligibility and Matrix score claimed at the date of Matrix submission.

You must read the ACT nomination guidelines carefully to ensure that you are eligible to complete the Canberra Matrix for ACT 491 / 190 nomination. If you are invited to apply for ACT nomination, your supporting documentation must evidence your eligibility and Matrix score claimed at the date you submitted the Matrix.

 

 

Part ONE

ACT nomination priorities

The Australian Government’s priority for migration in 2020-21 is supporting Australia’s economic and public health response to, and recovery from, the COVID-19 pandemic.  This includes an emphasis on migrants who will make productive investments in Australia, create jobs for Australians, provide critical health and medical skills, and support economic productivity.

Under the Territory Migration Agreement, the ACT is allocated a fixed number of nominations each year. The Australian Government has directed that nominations provided to states and territories are focused on applicants critical to supporting the effort in response to COVID-19 pandemic. This includes individuals providing critical or specialist medical services, with critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services; and those who deliver services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery. See ACT Critical Skills List January 2021.

ACT Nomination Guidelines

These guidelines explain how to express interest in applying for ACT nomination by completing a score-based ‘Canberra Matrix’. The Matrix allocates points against demonstrated economic contribution or benefit, English proficiency, formal qualifications, length of ACT residence/study, investment activity and close family ties. All Matrix scores are then ranked with the highest-ranked candidates invited to apply for ACT nomination.

Please note: You must read the ACT nomination guidelines carefully. You must meet the eligibility criteria before you complete the Canberra Matrix. If you are invited to apply for ACT nomination, your supporting documents must evidence your eligibility and all Matrix points claimed at the date of Matrix submission.

 

Submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) with Home Affairs SkillSelect.

Before completing the Canberra Matrix, you must be eligible to apply for a skilled migration visa to Australia. You must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to migrate to Australia through the Department of Home Affairs SkillSelect. You must:

  • Have a suitable skill assessment in your nominated occupation and meet the Home Affairs points test (currently 65 points).
  • Select the ACT as your preferred location to live in Australia. If the ACT is not selected, you will not meet the genuine commitment criteria for ACT nomination.
  • Meet the Home Affairs criteria at the date of ACT nomination decision. The ACT is unable to nominate an applicant who does not meet the age criteria, has an expired skill assessment or English test result.

 

If you are invited to apply for ACT nomination and your application is approved, your Home Affairs SkillSelect EOI will be confirmed and Home Affairs will automatically issue the visa invitation.

Only one ACT nomination place is offered per applicant. We will not confirm a new SkillSelect EOI if you made an error and/or are unable to apply for the visa.

Choose an ACT nomination pathway – provisional 491 or permanent 190

The ACT offers nomination under the following State / Territory nominated skilled migration streams:

  • Skilled Work Regional (provisional) subclass 491 visas.
  • Skilled Nominated (permanent) subclass 190 visas.

You must meet the eligibility criteria for ACT 491 nomination or ACT 190 nomination before you can complete the Canberra Matrix:

  • Canberra resident:
  • Eligibility criteria – ACT 491 nomination or ACT 190 nomination
  • Canberra Matrix 491 / 190 scoring table
  • Overseas applicant: The Canberra Matrix is currently closed to overseas applicants.

How to complete the Canberra Matrix

  • Migration agents acting on behalf of a client must register and create an ACT agents account. The Canberra Matrix can be accessed from the ACT agent portal.
  • Individual candidates not using a migration agent are not required to create an account. The Canberra Matrix can be accessed at the Canberra Your Future

Before you complete the Canberra Matrix:

  • Read the nomination guidelines carefully and make sure that you are eligible to complete the Matrix.

Completing the Canberra Matrix:

  • Enter your personal information.
  • Select either ACT 491 nomination or ACT 190 nomination.
  • Select Canberra resident.
  • Select Eligibility criteria – either an occupation on the ACT Critical Skill List January 2021 or 457 / 482 visa holder (if you select 457 / 482 visa holder, your must meet the 457 / 482 eligibility criteria)
  • Select a Matrix score in each category. Remember, your supporting documentation must evidence the Matrix points claimed at the date you submitted the Matrix. Documents dated after the Matrix is submitted will not meet the criteria.

Once you submit the Matrix, you will receive an email with a summary of the Matrix score claimed. The Matrix cannot be updated or withdrawn once it is submitted. If the claimed Matrix points increase/decrease due to an error or change in circumstances, you must complete a new Matrix; noting that your submission date/time will also change.

The Matrix will automatically expire six months after date of submission if an invitation is not issued. Once a Matrix has lapsed, it cannot be reactivated.

ACT Critical Skills List

The ACT Critical Skills List was reviewed and updated on 11 January 2021. The ACT Critical Skills List will be reviewed every four months and updated as required to ensure that the ACT Migration Program adapts and responds to the evolving critical skills needs of the ACT economy

                                     

2020-21 Ranking and selection process

Separate invitation rounds will be held for the 491 and 190 nomination streams. The highest ranked candidates in each stream will be invited to apply for ACT nomination. Please note: an invitation may not be issued if an occupation cap is met.

  • Only Matrix with a nominated occupation on the ACT Critical Skills List January 2021 will be selected and, if ranked, invited to apply for ACT nomination.
  • If your nominated occupation was removed from the ACT Critical Skills List January 2021, your Matrix will NOT be selected and will automatically lapse after six months.
  • 457 / 482 visa holders who have a Matrix score of 60 plus points will be invited to apply for ACT nomination.

 

Invitations to apply for ACT nomination

We will issue invitations on a regular basis; pro rata against the ACT allocation of nomination places set by Home Affairs. The number of invitations issued will vary in each round. The cut‑off for selection will depend on the occupation cap and the number of Matrix submitted. If there are more candidates with the same Matrix score than the number of invitation places available, selection may be based on the date and time of the Matrix submission. Candidates may be selected and invited if their nomination is deemed to be of significant economic benefit to the Territory.

One ACT nomination place only
The policy to offer only ONE ACT nomination place per applicant is strictly enforced given the limited number of nomination places available. An invitation may not be issued if you have been previously nominated by the ACT; or if you have an active invitation / application in the system.

Cap on Occupations

The number of ACT nomination places may be capped for each occupation on the ACT Critical Skills List. Invitations may not be issued when the monthly cap for an occupation is reached.

Invitation to apply for ACT nomination
You will be notified by email if you are invited to apply for ACT  Nomination.  The application must be lodged, and service fee paid, within 14 days of date of invitation. If you do not accept the invitation, the Matrix will automatically lapse after 14 days.  Once lapsed, the Matrix cannot be reactivated.

Requests for ranking information

Invitations are not guaranteed. The ACT Skilled Migration team will not respond to requests for information on ranking or the likelihood of receiving an invitation. Candidates will not be prioritised or issued invitations based on personal circumstances. This includes, but is not limited to, visa expiry dates or a change in circumstances including critical birthdays.

PART FIVE

Invitation to apply for ACT nomination

If you are selected to apply for ACT nomination, you will receive an invitation email with a web link to the online application. Migration agents may access the application via their agent account.

If you do not wish to accept the invitation e.g. you submitted multiple matrix or you cannot evidence the matrix scores claimed, the invitation will lapse after 14 days.

By accepting the invitation and submitting the application for ACT nomination, you are agreeing to reside in Canberra during the nomination and visa application process. If the ACT nominated visa is approved, you agree to continue residing in Canberra for at least two years from date of visa grant.

The signed declaration ‘Nomination Obligations to the Australian Capital Territory (ACT)’, must be attached to your application for ACT nomination. See Attachment A.

Completing the application for ACT nomination

An invitation does not guarantee that ACT nomination will be approved. You must complete the application for ACT nomination and provide the required supporting documents to evidence your eligibility to apply for ACT nomination and the Matrix score that the invitation was based on. Claims must be true at the date of Matrix submission.

See: Document checklist at PART SIX (page 18)

Your application for ACT nomination must be submitted (with service fee payment confirmed) within 14 days of date of invitation. If the application is not submitted within 14 days, the invitation will automatically expire and cannot be reactivated.

Once payment of the service fee is confirmed by email (within three working days), the application will be lodged and queued for processing.

Assessing the application

All applications are processed in submission date order. No requests for priority processing will be considered.

The standard processing period is 15 working days. For the current processing date click here.

Assessment of your application for ACT nomination will be based solely on the supporting documents provided at the time of lodgement. Additional documentation will not be accepted once the application is submitted. The case officer will not contact you for additional information or for clarification if your supporting documentation does not clearly demonstrate your eligibility or Matrix score claimed.

If the application is incomplete, or it does not clearly evidence the eligibility criteria or Canberra Matrix score claimed as at the date of Matrix submission, the application will be refused.

Offer of ACT nomination

Approval: If the application for ACT nomination is approved, your SkillSelect EOI will be confirmed and Home Affairs will simultaneously issue the visa invitation. You will be unable to update the SkillSelect EOI once ACT nomination is confirmed. You will then have 60 days to apply to Home Affairs for the ACT nominated skilled migration visa. ACT nomination does not guarantee that the skilled migration visa will be granted.

Only one ACT nomination place is offered per applicant. We will not confirm a new SkillSelect EOI if you made an error and/or are unable to apply for the visa.

Refusal: If the application for ACT nomination is refused, you will be informed of the reasons. You may only request a reconsideration of the refusal decision if you can show that your original supporting documents met the eligibility criteria and Matrix score. A request for reconsideration must be in writing. Additional documentation will not be accepted.

Applying for the ACT nominated skilled migration visa

Once the visa invitation is issued by Home affairs, you must lodge the visa application within 60 days. If the visa application is not lodged with Home Affairs within 60 days, the offer of ACT nomination will expire. This timeframe will not be extended.

Please note: If your application for an ACT nominated visa is refused by Home Affairs, the ACT Government will not, under any circumstances, appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal on your behalf.

Nomination obligations – living in Canberra

As part of your application for ACT nomination, you signed a declaration agreeing that ACT nomination is exclusive to the ACT and is NOT transferable to any other state or territory in Australia.

The ACT Government expects you to meet your obligations to live in Canberra for at least two years from the date of visa grant / permanent arrival in Australia. The ACT Government will inform Home Affairs if you do not make a genuine effort to meet your obligations to live in Canberra.

Notification of Home Affairs Visa Decision

You must inform us when your visa is granted, by email and attach a copy of the visa grant notification. If you are overseas, you must let us know your expected arrival date in Canberra.

Email: welcometocanberra@act.gov.au

 

Welcome to Canberra Settlement Service

The ACT Skilled Migration team provides a free settlement service to help ACT-nominated overseas migrants settle in Canberra. The Welcome to Canberra team will:

  • Provide information and advice while you are waiting for your visa, and, if you have questions about living in Canberra, refer you to the relevant websites;
  • Follow up with a phone call or email eight weeks after you have arrived in Canberra.

For more information email: welcometocanberra@act.gov.au

Disclaimer

The Australian Migration Programme does not guarantee a migration outcome for any temporary resident / international student in Australia. Neither is ACT nomination guaranteed for ACT residents who may be eligible for nomination. The demand for ACT nomination may exceed the Home Affairs allocation of nomination places; and many candidates may not rank highly enough to be selected and invited to apply for nomination.

The ACT Government and its employees are not liable for any inaccuracies or omissions in the information provided to the applicant in the context of their application for ACT nomination. The ACT Government is not responsible for finding employment, accommodation or providing financial incentive or assistance to ACT nominated skilled visa holders or other migrants.

You must record your employer, occupation and every pay cycle (weekly, fortnight or monthly) for the length of

employment claimed.  If you did not work, you must leave that pay cycle blank. Any period of

unpaid personal leave must be evidenced by a valid medical certificate. If you are working for more than two

employers in any claimed period, you can construct your own spreadsheet.

If the case officer is not satisfied that your ‘summary’ clearly records the total hours worked for each pay period,

your claims against the employment criteria will not be accepted.
