ACT Subclass 190 Skilled Nominations closed to overseas applicants

16 Sep 2016

Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa - Closure of ACT nomination program to overseas applicants

Effective immediately (13 September 2016 at 4pm AEST) applications for ACT nomination will not be accepted from overseas residents.

If an applicant is living overseas they will not be able to commence an application for ACT nomination of a Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa until the program reopens in 2017.

Applications for ACT that were recently 'in progress'  must have been submitted, and payment made, before midnight on the 13th September 2016 (AEST). You must have submitted a complete application e.g. all supporting documents attached, as additional documentation will not be accepted after lodgement.

This action does not affect Canberra based applicants. You are still able to lodge an application for ACT nomination of the Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa if you meet the current nomination criteria.
