The most recent changes to Victoria's State Nomination Programme for 2023-2024 offer excellent prospects for skilled migrants within and internationally.
The Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190), provides permanent residency throughout Victoria.
The Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa (subclass 491), caters especially to rural Victoria and provides a road to permanent residency.
Particularly, the Victorian government prioritizes occupations in:
Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
Hospitality or tourism
This program intends to recruit and retain qualified persons by allocating 3,300 skilled visa nomination spaces, 2,700 for subclass 190, and 600 for subclass 491.
Onshore candidates seeking a Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) nomination for the 2023-24 program must reside and work in regional Victoria during the nomination period. The Department of Home Affairs includes several Melbourne outlying suburbs in these regional zones.
Candidates who previously filed a subclass 491 ROI in 2022-23 but were not selected must reapply if they are still qualified under the revised requirements.
The program for category 190 visa nominations needs to be more balanced. If you filed a subclass 190 Registration of Interest (ROI) without selection in 2022-23, there is no requirement for a new ROI unless the given information has changed.
It is suggested to double-check the present ROI's partner points and yearly salary replies; if they are inaccurate, remove the current ROI and resubmit an amended one.
