The skilled and Business migration program in South Australia has received an interim allocation for state nomination for 2022-23. The Department of Home Affairs has allocated the interim nomination for both Business and skilled programs, where the business pathway will continue to invite applicants under the following business pathways:

  • The 188 – Business Innovation stream,
  • The 188 – Investor stream and
  • The 188 – Significant Investor stream.

You must meet the eligibility requirements for the programs above.

Skilled and business migration authorities have only received a draft of the allocation, and both are working on finalizing the state nomination requirements for the 2022-23 program year. The department is yet to release the final details of the migration programs on the website.

The government of South Australia will take active measures to ensure that highly skilled and experienced candidates get the nomination. The government wants to welcome only those who can best contribute to the skills needs and economic needs of South Australia.

In 2021, the South Australian Government requested the federal government to allocate additional places under the state nomination streams. The request was submitted to the Commonwealth Department of Home Affairs.

Both 190 and 491 visa nominations have quota each year where the state reserves the right to revise?nomination eligibility requirements and occupations. The state can ask applicants to withdraw their application, or reject the PR application due to the change in eligibility?criteria.

The 190 visa nomination requirements are only set of parameters or indicative guide where the applicants are not guaranteed to receive a 190 nomination even after meeting the requirements. In most cases, when applicants meet 190 nomination requirements but due to some reasons the state is unable to offer 190 nomination but instead they offer 491 nomination to the applicant.
