NSW runs the skilled nominated migration (190) program in order to attract highly skilled people in a range of occupations to contribute to NSW skills needs. NSW's position as an appealing destination for skilled migrants is confirmed beyond doubt by the significant demand shown for NSW nomination.
NSW has a selection-based invitation process for the 190 program. Under this process, NSW selects and invites the most suitable candidates to apply for NSW nomination.
The Skilled Nominated Visa (190 visa) is a permanent visa for eligible highly skilled workers to help meet skill needs in the state of NSW.
Under the program:
- The New South Wales Government can nominate highly skilled workers with an occupation on the priority occupation list.
- The 190 visa is a points-tested visa. Candidates who receive a NSW nomination are awarded five additional points towards their overall points score.
- Candidates nominated by NSW need to agree to live and work in NSW for at least their first two years in Australia while holding this visa.
The visa criteria and visa application process is administered by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Candidates who are invited to apply for NSW nomination need to demonstrate that they meet both NSW's and DIBP's visa eligibility requirements.
