Recently, the ACT (Australian Capital Territory) released an important update on its state nomination program for the current financial year. Let’s take a closer look at the details.
For the financial year 2022/23, the ACT has been allocated a total of 2025 nomination places each for the Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190) and the Skilled Work Regional Visa (subclass 491). Additionally, they had 10 nomination places available for the Business Innovation and Investment Program.
As of now, the ACT has already issued a significant number of nominations. Specifically, they have granted the following:
- 1392 Nominations for the Skilled Work Regional Visa (491)
- 1175 nominations for the Skilled Nominated Visa (190)
- 10 places for the Business Innovation and Investment Program
This means that the ACT currently has 633 available places for the Skilled Regional Work visa (491) and 850 available places for the Skilled Nominated visa (190).
However, it’s important to note that the Business Innovation and Investment Program has reached its cap and is now closed for the remainder of this financial year.
Considering the remaining nominations, the ACT has a deadline of June 30, 2023, to fill up these spots before the new financial year begins on July 1. In preparation for the upcoming year, the ACT has reviewed its skills list and nomination guidelines. As a result, they have added an additional 128 occupations to the list. The aim is to simplify the nomination process for prospective migrants, including candidates from overseas.
That concludes our update on the ACT state nomination program. If you’re considering skilled migration to Australia, particularly through the ACT, now is the perfect time to explore the available opportunities. Remember to keep an eye on the deadlines and requirements, and consult with the relevant authorities or migration agents for accurate and up-to-date information.
