Canberra to Re open to nominations for skilled migrants:
ACT (Australian Capital Territory) Government has announced the re-opening of state nomination program after its partial closure in June 2018.
The nominated Skilled Migration Subclass 190 visa program will reopen on 29th November 2018 for in-demand occupations on the ACT skilled occupation list.
The ACT Government, however, has replaced the first-come-first-served system with a merit-based assessment in view of the high demand for state nomination for 190 visa which it says is more in line with other states in Australia and will more effectively address the skill needs of the ACT.
The state nomination places are increased to 1500 from 800.
According to the announcement, the new policy will only process the application of those candidates with an in-demand occupation on the ACT Skilled Occupation List.
