BSMQ Business Program Updates

Important cut-off dates before the program closes 

The BSMQ business program closed at 12am (midnight AEST) on 24 February 2021. EOI s submitted on Skillselect before this time will picked-up and considered for nomination.

Applications already invited and under consideration will continue to be assessed until the dates outlined below.

Subclass 132 visa applicants 

Subclass 132 applicants who have received an invitation to upload documents must submit all supporting documents by Tuesday 20 April 2021.

This is the last cut off date to upload documents, as the final nomination date for nomination to the Department of Home Affairs is Tuesday 27 April 2021.

If you are unable to submit your documents by Tuesday 20 April 2021, your application will be closed.

Your subclass 132 visa application must be lodged with the Department of Home Affairs within 60 days of nomination, and the latest, by 30 June 2021. From the 1 July 2021 the subclass 132 stream will cease.

Subclass 188 applicants 

Subclass 188 applicants who have received an invitation to upload documents must submit all supporting documents in the two-week period provided by BSMQ. Failure to do so could see the invitation cancelled.

The last cut off date to upload documents to BSMQ for the subclass is Friday 18 June 2021.

The last date for nomination by BSMQ under the current 188 criteria is 30 June. However, you can submit your visa application to Home Affairs after this date, as long as it meets the normal 60 day requirement.

If you receive a nomination from 1 July 2021 by BSMQ you will be subject to the new subclass 188 criteria.
