Australian Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 Permit Scheme Closed

Certain fresh news suggests that the number of visa-petitions that can be filed--for nomination under the Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 Permit--for the Australian province of the New South Wales (NSW), have touched its upper limit even as the scheme is now shut-down for the 2012-13 fiscal year.

Aspirants could be entitled to seek NSW state sponsorship from July 2013 onwards when the scheme becomes available once again. Though the visa petitions received prior to April 11, 2013 are presently being processed the petitions received, post the given date, will not be entertained anymore.

The NSW entertains visa submissions for nominations for certain other permit categories also, such as the Significant Investor Permit. But, it requires as many as 12 weeks to process the submissions filed for the nominated migration. Hence, the petitions can not be finalized during the 2012-13 program year. Reportedly, the particulars of the intake of the petitions for the 2013-14, for the Sub-category 190 Permit, will be offered during the month of July this year.

Skilled Nominated 190 Permit is a permanent work permit for those who possess the credentials or expertise required by the economy of Down Under, but cannot cater to the needed pass marks, to gain a Skilled Independent Permit. The said class is also available for those, who though can cater to the pass mark, they want to benefit from the access priority processing, which comes into force after an involved Australian territory/state administration bureau offers territory/state sponsorship.
