Skilled Nominated Visa Subclass 190

The Australian State Sponsorship Migration visa (subclass 190) is a permanent immigration visa which will allow you to settle in Australia and work a job that is in high demand in a particular state.

To meet the requirements, your occupation needs to fall on one of the Australian skilled occupation lists, you have to score a minimum of 60 points on the Australian points system and your English language skills should be of a proficient level. Irish, UK, US and Canadian passport holders will not be required to pass an English test if the other visa requirements are met.

You need to select a state where your skills are in high demand and fill the shortage for your occupation for the first 2 years of your visa.

Dear Sarah, I would like to thank you for your e-mail and your colleagues for providing me with professional and friendly visa service during the last nine months, especially because my situation was not a simple deal: non-EU citizen, differences in name transliteration. And I look forward to use your service again, if I decide to travel abroad in the future.
