Summary of State Nominated 190 Visas Across Each State

Following last week’s budget as well the National Migration Conference, we would like to provide our readers with an up to date summary of 190 State Nominated Visa Programmes.  We are hoping this summary will make it easier for you to advise your clients or if you are an applicant, consider your current position.

New South Wales

Invitation rounds will commence shortly for subclass 190 visa nomination. In line with Home Affairs direction, NSW will only invite applicants currently in selected health, ICT and engineering occupations, and who currently reside in NSW.

You do not need to submit a new EOI in SkillSelect if your current EOI is valid.


Victoria is operating on a limited list of occupations at present. Those who submitted a Registration of Interest for Victorian State Visa Nomination on the Live in Melbourne website by 5pm AEST, 21 September 2020 are being considered for the nomination.  Further details are to be announced soon.

South Australia

South Australia will be publishing their occupation list soon.  Please continue following the updates using the website below.


Tasmania will continue to operate using the interim occupations which are available.  Further occupations are expected to be announced in due course.  You can follow the details here.


At present, the BSMQ program remains closed until such time that the allocations are finalised by the Federal government.  Further announcements are expected shortly:

Western Australia

The 190 program is currently suspended and is expected to re-open in October.  No further details are available at this stage. 

You can follow the progress using this website:

Northern Territory

At this stage, onshore General Skilled Migration (GSM) nomination applications and all Business Investment and Innovation Program nomination applications will continue to be accepted and assessed, but no nominations can be issued until the Northern Territory has been allocated quotas. Offshore GSM nomination applications remain closed.

Australian Capital Territory

The 190 program is open to those who are on the Critical Skills Occupation list.  The new round of invitations is expected to occur on or before 23 October 2020.

As always, the information is subject to change without notice therefore it is paramount to seek professional advice.  If you need assistance, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
