State and Territory governments may nominate visa applicants who have an occupation that is in shortage in their particular State or Territory. Applicants should check the websites of each State or Territory government to see if their occupation is on their skills shortage list.

The visa to apply for under State Nomination is Skilled - Nominated (subclass 190).

To be able to lodge a valid application for this visa you need to first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) through SkillSelect. You can do this in or outside Australia.

If you are nominated by a state or territory and meet the basic requirements for this visa, you will then receive an invitation to apply.

  •     have your skills assessed by the relevant assessing authority as suitable for your nominated occupation

"Choosing the right migration consultant is difficult.  I consulted with many Migration Agents, but Opal Consulting impressed me a lot.  I applied for a visa for my husband, which was rejected.  After some time my friends suggested that I try "Opal Consulting".  I was amazed with their professionalism and the way they arranged my documents. They kept me up to date throughout the whole process.  We got the visa after 3 months. Yeah!  Finally I was so happy to see my husband after 3 years and with hard struggle."
