Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190)
This visa is for skilled workers seeking to be sponsored by a state or territory government. Under this pathway, the nomination by a state or territory awards you an extra 5 points towards the point test.
Each State and Territory has its own list of occupations in demand and its own eligibility criteria, as well as the applicants obligations towards the state or Territory.
This visa will allow you to work and live in Australia permanently; however, you are restricted to live in the state or territory for a minimum of two years.
