Skilled - Nominated (190) visa
Like all skilled visas, the Skilled - Nominated (190) visa is a points-based application. You must be working in a job on the Consolidated Skilled Occupation List (CSOL) and then meet requirements around your age, English competence, training and work experience.
You must also be sponsored by a state or territory. Each state has unique skill shortages and thus occupations appear at different times on different lists. Each state varies in its specific requirements. Some states require applicants to have higher English scores; others require more work experience or detailed evidence of the applicant's assets.
SKILLED - NOMINATED (190) VISA ELIGIBILITY
Once you have activated your 190 visa, you and your family gain permanent residency in Australia. In summary, this means:
* You and your partner to work in any job on arrival
* You can study at an Australian school or university
* You receive subsidised healthcare through Medicare
* You are on the pathway to Australian citizenship
* You can sponsor others for permanent residency
We have managed Skilled - Nominated (190) visa applications for people working in various occupations including teachers, IT professionals, engineers, tradesmen and nurses. We manage the skill assessment as this is the first step in the skilled visa process. The skill assessment is complex with some authorities requiring detailed reports of work projects or informal training references from the first years in your career. We work with you to make sure you will meet the requirements.
EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
Under Australia's SkillSelect (skilled migration visa) program, you are required to lodge an 'Expression of Interest' (EOI). This places you in a pool to be invited to apply for a visa. Once you have a positive skill assessment and state sponsorship, you will be invited to apply.
Many Skilled - Nominated (190) visa applicants need to sit an English test called IELTS. We help our clients by sharing hints and tips for undertaking this test.
