ACT Occupation List 2020

About the ACT Occupation List

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

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

The ACT Occupation List identifies the skills that are currently in demand in Canberra (for skilled migration purposes). The ACT Occupation List is not linked to specific job vacancies and it is not a guarantee of a job in a nominated occupation. You must be satisfied that there are sufficient employment opportunities in your nominated occupation before you apply for ACT nomination. You will compete for employment vacancies with all people in the labour market as part of a normal selection process. Your success will depend on employer requirements, your relevant skills, your experience and your level of English language ability.

New residents generally do not meet the criteria of employers with employment opportunities that require Australian Citizenship or a security clearance.

 

ACT Occupation List updates

While a major analysis of the demand for occupations will generally be undertaken twice a year, usually in January and July, the demand for each occupation will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Once it is determined that the demand for an occupation has been met, the occupation will be closed without further notice.

 

ACT Occupation List

Occupation Caveats: The following caveats apply to certain ‘open’ occupations on the ACT Occupation List. If you wish to nominate an ‘open’ occupation but you cannot comply with any ‘caveat’, the occupation is deemed to be ‘closed’.  If your occupation is closed or deemed to be closed, you (or a spouse/ partner) cannot claim Matrix points for an ‘open’ occupation in any category.
** Employment Caveat. Minimum one year ACT employment contract in nominated occupation:

  • with an Australian medium to large enterprise (50 plus employees) located in the ACT; or 
  • an appointment for an academic position at an ACT tertiary institution. 
## Minimum one year employment contract with an ACT employer in the nominated occupation.
^^  Australian Registration or licencing is required

ACT 491 / 190 Nomination Guidelines

This Guideline is effective from 1 Jan 2020.

ACT NOMINATION

The ACT Skilled Migration Program is a significant contributor to the ACT’s economy and population growth. The aim of the Program is to attract and retain talented people, to build the workforce profile, strengthen and diversify the local economy. The ACT nomination program is aimed at applicants who can demonstrate economic contribution or benefit and/or a genuine commitment to been part of the ACT community as demonstrated by long term ACT residence.

The ACT offers nomination of a Skilled Nominated (permanent) subclass 190 visa and a Skilled Regional (provisional) subclass 491 visa.

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. 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.

You must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to migrate to Australia through the Department of Home Affairs SkillSelect. Your nominated occupation must be on the Home Affairs list of eligible skilled occupations. 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.

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.

Choose an ACT nomination pathway – 491 or 190

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

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

You must meet the eligibility criteria for the ACT nomination before you can complete the Canberra Matrix; where you will be scored against criteria to evidence your economic contribution or benefit and/or a genuine commitment to been part of the ACT community as demonstrated by long term ACT residence.

 

 

The Canberra Matrix scoring table:

  • Canberra resident – Matrix scoring table at PART THREE
  • Overseas applicant – Matrix scoring table at PART FIVE

 

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 Create Your Future

Enter your personal information; select either ACT 491 nomination or ACT 190 nomination; select a Matrix score in each of the categories.  Your supporting documentation must evidence your eligibility for ACT nomination and all claims for Matrix points at the date of Matrix submission.

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 your circumstances change and your claimed points increase/decrease, you must complete a new Matrix; noting that your submission date/time will also change.

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

 

Canberra Matrix – Ranking, selection and invitation

The Canberra Matrix score will be ranked separately for ACT 190 and 491 nomination. The highest ranked candidates in each stream will be invited to apply for ACT nomination.

Separate invitation rounds will be held for the 190 and 491 nomination streams.  Invitations are generally issued on a pro rata monthly basis, though this varies according to ACT Government priorities and current program settings. The number of invitations issued will vary in each round. The cut‑off for selection will depend on the number and quality 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.

Invitations may not be issued when the number of invitations issued in the financial year exceeds demand. The ACT Government may cap the occupations nominated at any time.

Candidates may also be selected and invited if their nomination is deemed to be of significant benefit to the Territory.

Requests for ranking information

Invitations are not guaranteed. The ACT Government 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.

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 submiting the application for ACT nomination, you have agreed to:

  • Canberra residents: 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.
  • Overseas applicants: reside in Canberra for at least two years from date of permanent arrival in Australia.

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

 

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 FIVE (page 25)

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. Any requests for priority processing based on a change of circumstances will not be considered e.g. visa expiry dates, a significant birthday or expiry of mandatory documents.

The standard processing period is 45 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.

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. The case officer will not contact you for clarification in this instance.

 

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 approved application. The ACT will not re-confirm a new SkillSelect EOI if you have made an error and as a result are unable to apply for the visa.

Refusal: If the application for ACT nomination is refused, you will be informed of the reasons why the supporting documentation was deemed not to have substantiated your application or Matrix score. You may only request a reconsideration of the refusal decision if you can demonstrate that the supporting documents attached at time of application met the eligibility criteria or Matrix score. A request for reconsideration must be in writing. The review officer’s reconsideration will be based solely on the original supporting documents.  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 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 the ACT Skilled Migration team when your visa is granted, by email and attach a copy of the visa grant notification. If you are overseas, you must inform the team of 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;
  • Meet with you (by appointment) when you arrive in Canberra and provide initial settlement information and advice—please email welcometocanberra@act.gov.au and give at least four weeks’ notice;
  • Follow up with a phone call or email eight weeks after you have arrived in Canberra.

For more information about the Canberra Settlement Service, email: welcometocanberra@act.gov.au

Monitoring Program

As part of your signed nomination obligations you have agreed to:

  • complete settlement surveys at 6, 12, 18 and 24 months after arrival
  • Inform us of any change to your contact details for two years after visa grant/arrival.

 

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.

These guidelines are subject to change without notice at any time; and must be read in conjunction with the information on the Canberra Create Your Future website.

Combined list of eligible skilled occupations 17/18

Combined list of eligible skilled occupations

Separate legislative instruments now exist outlining eligible occupations for the following sponsored visa programmes:

As the occupations available are, however, the same, a single list of these occupations is provided below in alphabetical order (for ease of reference).

Note:

  • The table below specifies whether the relevant occupation is included on the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).
    • Applicants for a subclass 457 visa should be aware that the maximum visa period available to you if your occupation is on the STSOL is 2 years unless a longer period is required to meet international trade obligations.
    • 4 years is the maximum visa period available if your occupation is on the MLTSSL.
  • There are caveats on certain occupations (indicated via ‘*** asterisks’) which exclude the use of the occupation in certain circumstances.  A summary of Caveats on occupations is available.
  • Applicants who require a skills assessment as part of their visa application must contact a relevant assessing authority directly to obtain a skill assessment. The assessing authority will provide all necessary applications forms and associated information relating to the assessment. There will be a charge by the Assessing authorities for the assessment.

The acronyms used in the legislative instrument and this table are listed in the Assessing authorities.
