The Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 Visa is a permanent residency visa which requires either a State or Territory Government to nominate you.

In order to start the process for an application for a skilled Visa 190 you must submit an expression of interest to the Australian Immigration Department, if you receive an invitation inviting you to apply, you must action it within 60 days of receipt. However, you must still adhere to some strict criteria.

Each state and territory has their own needs and skills shortages; thus the occupation list can vary depending on the state you are applying in.

You can apply from within or outside the country for this skilled visa, so whether you are already here or planning to migrate to Australia you are still eligible.

The main criteria as stated by the Australian Immigration Department is;

  • Your occupation must be on the relevant skilled occupation list
  • You must be under the age of 50 years
  • Have obtained a suitable skills assessment
  • Scored the relevant points indicated by the Australia Immigration Department
  • Have been nominated by either a State or Territory Government
  • Have the required English Language Ability
  • Meet the health & character criteria

The 190 visa will give you the benefit of being able to work and live in Australia providing you work and live in the nominating state or territory for a minimum of 2 years.

You can include the following people in your visa application:

  • your partner (married or de facto)
  • your or your partner’s dependent children
  • other dependent relatives.

Your family members must be able to show that they meet health and character requirements.
