Victoria Skilled Migration Program Now Open
We are thrilled to announce that the Victoria Skilled Migration Program is officially open for the 2023-24 application cycle! Whether you’re currently residing in Victoria or overseas, this could be your golden opportunity to make your Australian dream a reality.
Changes to the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa (Subclass 491)
For those aiming to secure a Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa (Subclass 491) nomination in the upcoming program, there have been some noteworthy changes. To be eligible, onshore
applicants must be living and working in regional Victoria at the time of nomination. It’s important to note that the Department of Home Affairs has included some outer suburbs of Melbourne within these regional zones.
If you had previously submitted a subclass 491 Expression of Interest (EOI) in the 2022-23 program and were not selected, don’t be disheartened. You still have a chance to pursue your migration dreams. To do so, you’ll need to submit a fresh EOI if you meet the updated eligibility criteria.
Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190)
The good news is that there are no changes to the Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190) nomination program. This means that if you were planning to apply for this visa category, you can proceed as originally intended without any alterations or disruptions.
It’s an exciting time for skilled workers looking to migrate to Victoria, and these updates reflect the state’s commitment to attracting talent from around the world. The Victorian Skilled Migration Program continues to be a pathway for skilled individuals to contribute to the state’s growth and prosperity.
