25/11/2020

On, September 3, 2020, Victorian Government announced that the skilled visa nomination program for Victoria will be opening on 8 September, 2020 and this nomination program will run until 5 October, 2020.

In the VIC state nomination, Government made it very clear that they are going to prioritize the applications for the critical roles that will assist the State Government to deal with COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants will only be selected if their occupations are related to health or medical research and contributing to the recovery of economy of the State.

There are 2 options for skilled migration:

  • Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
  • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491)

Applicants can apply under two categories for Victorian Visa nomination:

  • Visa Nomination Occupation List for Victoria
  • Visa Nomination Occupation List for Graduates

State Government has made some major changes to their eligibility requirements for Subclass 190 and provisional 491 visa.

State Government is requiring the applicants to have lived and worked in Victoria for the past 6 months and another change is that the Government has waived the Finance requirement of $20,000 for the single applicant.
