Nomination by a State or Territory Government


Each State and Territory Government has its own list of occupations in demand in their area. There may be specific requirements in relation to your work experience, English language ability or specialised skills. Some states and territories have eligibility criteria that favours the graduates from their own state or territory in the nomination process.


You need to submit an expression of interest (EOI) via SkillSelect with details of your nominated occupation, skills and qualifications. SkillSelect will estimate your points score.  The nomination process is a decision of the relevant state or territory. If you are nominated by a state or territory agency, you will be invited to apply for the visa. If you are invited, you have 60 calendar days to apply for the visa. We will then process your visa application.


Each state or territory government will release these nominations throughout the year and once the quota is reached the program will cease for that category.
