Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)


This visa allows skilled workers who are nominated by an Australian state or territory government live and work in Australia as a permanent resident.

Submit an expression of interest (EOI) through SkillSelect with details of your nominated occupation, skills and qualifications.
