Skilled Nominated Visa

Subclass 190

The Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190) is a points-based visa for skilled workers nominated by an Australian state or territory.

The visa applicant must submit EOI (Expression of Interest) through Skill Select online migration program.

You also need to apply for state sponsorship with an Australian state/territory. This will require that you meet the sponsorship requirements and have work experience in a position listed on one of the State Migration Plans.

After you are invited to apply, the completed application is submitted for the approval by the department.

Subclass 190 has a higher priority processing than Skilled Independent visa subclass 189.
