The following information has been released by the Government of Victoria in relation to State Sponsored Migration:


The Department of Home Affairs has now confirmed that we can continue to use our interim allocation places beyond 5 October.

We will continue nominating skilled and business migrants, until we fill our interim nomination places. If you have been selected to apply for a skilled visa, you can continue to submit your State Skilled Nominated Visa application past 5 October.

We’ve had significant interest in both the skilled and business programs. The numbers below show that this continues to be a competitive process.

Victoria’s interim allocation for 2020-21 were:
- 600 places for skilled subclass 190
- 200 places for skilled subclass 491
- 400 places for the business innovation and investment program

We received:
- more than 2400 registrations of interest received from skilled migrants, and
- more than 480 application from business migrants.
