New South Wales runs the skilled nominated migration 190 program to attract highly skilled people in a range of occupations to contribute to the local skill needs. NSW’s position as an appealing destination for skilled migrants is confirmed beyond doubt by the significant demand shown for NSW nomination. It has a selection-based invitation process for the 190 program. Under this process, NSW selects and invites the most suitable candidates to apply for nomination.

What’s Included in Skilled Nominated Visa 190 Subclass?

Under the program:

  • The New South Wales Government can nominate highly skilled workers with an occupation on the priority occupation list.
  • The 190 visa is a points-tested visa and candidates who receive a NSW nomination are awarded five additional points towards their overall points score.
