NSW Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190) Update.

Invitation rounds Invitation rounds occur ongoing throughout the financial year. There are no set dates, and rounds are not announced beforehand. NSW cannot advise the date of upcoming NSW invitation rounds or the likelihood your SkillSelect EOI will be invited by contacting our office.

Basic eligibility To be considered in a NSW invitation round, you must meet the basic criteria outlined below: Visa You must meet all requirements set by Home Affairs for this visa subclass. Skills Be skilled in an occupation that is:

  • within an ANZSCO unit group identified on the NSW Skilled Nominated Skills List; AND

  • is eligible for the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)

Residency You must be either currently residing in NSW or offshore and have continuously done so for a minimum period of six months. Work experience and point score You must meet the minimum skilled work experience and point score for your unit group. These are identified on the NSW Skilled Nominated Skills List next to the name of your unit group.

Important information about nomination criteria Meeting the minimum nomination outlined above in no way guarantees you will be invited to apply for NSW nomination. Because being invited to apply is exceptionally competitive, we strongly encourage anyone seeking a NSW nomination to explore all other migration pathways and do not wait to be invited by NSW.
