NSW State Sponsorship (SC 190 visa) list updated for the 2017-18 year on the 25th Sept.
They state:

"The NSW 190 Priority Skilled Occupation List has been updated. In the 2017-18 financial year, we will continue to select and invite top ranking candidates in occupations on the NSW 190 Priority Skilled Occupation List (NSW 190 List). We will select and invite candidates on an ongoing basis throughout the financial year. There are no key dates involved in this process."

"The occupations on these lists are selected to meet the skill needs of the NSW economy. Our lists will be amended from time to time according to the skills needs in NSW. We also limit the number of invitations to certain occupations to ensure that places allocated under the 190 program are in line with the skills needs of NSW.

The highest ranking candidates in occupations on the NSW 190 Priority Skilled Occupation List (NSW 190 List) will be invited first. "

Thank you, I got very excited until I read this part “You must be under 45 years old at the time you submit your application for NSW nomination and when you are nominated by NSW nomination for the 190 visa.”

I thought they were relaxing the age limit, I just turned 47 last week :’-(

Far from relaxing it, its been tightened to 45 for most skills visas.

As Pollyanna points out there was a reduction in the age limit to less than 45 years of age for most (the transitional stream will reduce next year) of the skilled visa options in July including the 189 and 190 visas.
