South Australia Extends Their Interim Allocation of BIIP and GSM into November

South Australia (along with a number of other States) have been given interim allocation numbers to continue to processing subclass Business Innovation & Investment Programs.  Full announcement of final allocations was expected to occur shortly after the delivery of the Federal Budget on 6 October 2020.

South Australia’s 190 and 491 visa nominations are subject to a quota. South Australia reserves the right to revise nomination eligibility criteria for these visa subclasses without notice.

As announced earlier, the Commonwealth Department of Home Affairs has identified critical sectors to support Australia’s COVID-19 public health response and economic recovery. Applicants who are nominating occupations in these sectors will be prioritised. This list of priority critical sectors may change over time. Applicants selecting ‘ANY’ state or territory or multiple states and territories (including South Australia) will be considered for nomination.

Applications will be assessed by South Australia within 6 to 8 weeks. Priority processing is not available, however if an applicant has an imminent visa expiry, South Australia will make every endeavour to assess the application before the visa expiry.
