190 Visa

What is a State/Territory nominated 190 Visa?

 The State/Territory nominated 190 Visa is a Permanent Residency Skilled Migration Visa for occupations in high demand, such as yours.

The scheme works by each state or territory nominating a limited number of skilled migrants places annually (each state/territory has their own minimum eligibility requirements).

However, meeting the minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee nomination.  Each state/territory assesses its applications differently.


These are the basic requirements to apply for this Visa. You must:

  • Submit an Expression of Interest and be nominated (see the Expression of Interest page)
  • Be younger than 45 years of age
  • Have your skills assessed (see Skills Assessment page)
  • Have at least competent English (see IELTS page)
  • Meet health and character requirements

All successful applicants are required to:

  • Commit to living and working in Australia for two years
  • Bring sufficient funds (for at least 3 months) to cover your initial settlement costs.

What does this Visa entitle me to?

190 Visa holders and their family are entitled to:

  • Live and work permanently in Australia
  • Study in Australia
  • Access Medicare
  • Social welfare if required
  • Apply for full Australian Citizenship
  • Sponsor others for permanent residence
