Skilled nominated migration (190)
NSW is an extremely popular and highly competitive destination for skilled migrants. At 4,000 places, NSW has the country's largest state skills visa nomination program.
In recognition of ongoing high demand and to ensure that places allocated under the program are aligned to the skills needs of the state's economy, NSW is introducing a selection-based invitation process for the 190 program in 2015.
This will be implemented from February 2015 onwards and will be a streamlined and easy-to-use process for candidates.
Under the selection and invitation process for the 190 program, prospective candidates can only apply for NSW nomination if they have been selected from SkillSelect and invited by NSW Trade & Investment.
