Regional Migration Schemes
Australia has a number of visas, including 489 Skilled (Provisional), Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (187) and Skilled Regional (Permanent) 887 - that are designed to encourage migrants to regional areas.
Like all other state and territory governments in Australia, NSW runs its own skilled migration program together with the Department of Home Affairs under which the state government supports the skilled visa applications based on the needs of the state’s economy and skill needs.
The NSW government has commenced the immigration program with a new skill list for the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190). Under the 190 program, the NSW government nominates skilled workers with an occupation on the NSW Priority Skilled Occupation List, which is also called NSW 190 List. Nominated visa holders have to commit to living and working in NSW for their first two years in Australia on this visa.
The 190, like the 189 Skilled Independent visa, is a points-tested visa. Applicants who receive state nomination are awarded five additional points towards their overall points score.
With the points cut off for some visas climbing as high as 85, migration agents say state nomination is helpful for many applicants in securing the requisite points.
“It’s especially helpful for occupations like the accountants who need at least 85 points to receive an invite from the Department of Home Affairs to apply for a permanent visa. If someone already has 80, another five points can come from the state nomination,” says Jujhar Bajwa of Bajwa Immigration Consultants.
