new south wales skilled nomination programOne of the most sought-after immigration destinations in Australia is New South Wales. It is thus no surprise that the New South Wales skilled nomination program (190) is one of the most competitive. With some 4000 places available, it's also one of the largest programs.

How does the New South Wales skilled nomination program work?

Prospective migrants to New South Wales are invited to apply for migration through the New South Wales skilled nomination program.

The program recognises that each state or territory has different needs when it comes to skill shortage areas and as such make provision for that. It also allows for the different criteria regarding skills and application processes.

About the Skilled Nomination visa (subclass 190)

  • You will be eligible for a Skilled Nomination visa (subclass 190) if your occupation and qualifications appear on the NSW 190 Skilled Occupation List.
  • The Skilled Nomination visa is a points-based visa. The requirement is that you score at least 60 points. A nomination from New South Wales will score you an additional 5 points on your assessment.
  • Should your application be successful, you will have to stay and work in New South Wales for two years.

Important information

There is one golden rule to follow when you plan on migrating to Australia – only deal with licensed immigration agents.

To find out if the agent you're dealing with, simply look for them on the MARA website. You can use the surname to find the agent and their credentials.

Our licensed advisers's name is Katrin Maja O'Flynn and you can view her details on the Migration Agents Authority website here.

Another word of caution: Beware of agents outside of Australia with an Australian DIBP Offshore ID. This ID is issued for administrative purposed only. It is not a credential and does not represent an endorsement of the agent by the Australian government. In short, you are not dealing with a registered agent and does not have the security of MARA's backing.
