Skilled - Nominated (subclass 190) Visa

This points-based visa is for skilled workers nominated by a state or territory of Australia. A visa holder can live and work permanently anywhere in Australia, and the application may include eligible family members.

In 2012–2013, the Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 visa replaced both the Skilled Offshore – Sponsored Subclass 176 and the onshore subclass 886 visa

You need first to submit an Expression of Interest through Skill Select to be able to submit a valid application for this visa. You can do this in Australia or outside of. You will then receive an invitation to apply if you are nominated by a state or territory and meet the basic requirements for this visa.

Eligibility Criteria

As of July 1, 2018, the minimum score to apply for this visa is 65 points. The more points you have, the more likely you are to obtain an invitation to apply for a visa to live and work in Australia. Points are awarded based on several factors, age, English proficiency, work experience, educational credentials, marital status, and partner's skills.

  • Applicant must be under the age of 45 to apply for the visa
  • Having an occupation on the 190-visa occupation list and have a full positive skills assessment
  • Having an occupation on the 190-visa occupation list and have a full positive skills assessment
  • Meet health and character requirements;
  • Be able to score 65 points or more
  • Lodge an expression of interest (EOI) and be invited to apply
  • Be nominated by an Australian state or territory government
  • Not having a visa canceled or a previous application refused

Once a candidate has decided that their work is in demand, they can then apply to SkillSelect an Expression of Interest (EOI), outlining their credentials, skills, and occupation.

A state or territory can agree to appoint them if they get the necessary score. The candidate has to gather their documents once they are selected and apply for the visa within 60 days of receiving an invitation. The 190 visas are issued everywhere from 11 to 14 months.

They may include members of their family unit, including their spouse or wife, the children, or step-children of their child or spouse. Family members applying for a visa must meet the requirements regarding health and character. If that form does not include their wife or dependent children, they may be asked to explain why.
