State Nomination

For nominated skilled visa, it is mandatory to get nominated by that particular state first. It is more like the primary step towards the nominated skilled visa. But I should be kept in consideration that getting a state nomination does not imply that you will get nominated skilled visa for sure it’s more like a first step towards gaining a nominated skilled visa.

What State nomination is for?
You will be needing a state nomination for the following:

Skill nominated visa subclass 190:
This visa invites the state nominated skilled professionals to come, live and work in Australia on a permanent basis.

Skilled regional visa subclass 491:
This visa allows a skilled professional to come, live and work in regional areas of Australia. An applicant has to live and work in regional areas for a specific time period before applying for permanent residency.

Streams of State Nomination visa:

There are basically two major streams of this Visa:

General stream:

This is for the applicants who fulfil the basic requirements of state nomination and should belong to the profession in that state occupation list.
