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.

Applicants who hold an offer of employment in Victoria in their nominated occupation or meet the streamlined PhD or 457 pathways are not affected by this closure and may apply for these engineering and building occupations during this time.



The occupations affected by the temporary closure are:

312112 Building Associate

312211 Civil Engineering Draftsperson

233311 Electrical Engineer

312311 Electrical Engineering Draftsperson

This temporary closure will allow processing of all outstanding applications and reduce the risk of delay for future applicants.

Applications for all other occupations eligible for Victorian Government visa nomination remain open. "

Queensland State Sponsorship 190/489 visas Update:

Interstate Skilled Applicants no longer eligible

25 October, 2017

BSMQ will not be sending out any more invitations to interstate applicants.

Interstate applicants are no longer able to apply for Queensland state nomination.
If you are currently interstate, in order to be eligible for Queensland state nomination, you must meet our Working in Queensland or Alumni pathway criteria. This would require you to move to Queensland and meet any working requirements before submitting an Expression of Interest to BSMQ.
