NSW Nomination Requirements for (Subclass 190)

 A skilled Nominated visa(Subclass 190) is a permanent visa that should nominated by the Australian States/Territory. Each State & Territory sets its specific requirements and pathway. All applicants must fulfil all visa requirements outlined by Home Affairs of Australia.

Applicants cannot apply directly, they must be invited by the NSW and when they approve the nomination, only then the applicant can apply for the visa. NSW do not announce the invitation round and NSW has set its Target Sectors. NSW will prioritize EOIs on those occupations which are in the NSW target sectors.

NSW Basic eligibilities:

·Visa Eligibility: Applicants must meet all visa requirements outlined by Home Affairs for this visa.

·Skills assessment: An applicant must have a valid skills assessment in an occupation on the eligible skilled occupation list for this visa

·Residency: Applicants must currently residing in NSW or Offshore:

-in NSW and have continuously resided in NSW for a minimum period of six months; or

-offshore and have continuously resided offshore for a minimum period of six months.
