State Nominated Visa (Subclass 190) Australia

Australia is a country that every skilled migration aspirant looks to move to over the years. This is the reason that DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection) every year receives tens of thousands of visa applications for its diversified visa categories, i.e. Skilled work visa, PR visa, visit visa, student visa, business visa, spousal visa, parent category visas, etc.

Skilled Migration- The Most applied visa category in Australia

Skilled Migration to Australia has been significant over the years. It’s a win-win situation for both when it comes to skilled migrants moving to Australia. The Australia needs skilled workers to meet the skills shortage in the country in the high demand occupations. On the other hand, a skilled worker like the high-income jobs, high employment rate, improved infrastructure facilities, and high living standards of Australia.

Immigration pathways in Australia

The Australian government has designed different visa categories to invite and accept immigrant workers in the country. Few common skilled visa categories of Australia are, Subclass 189 Permanent Visa, Subclass 190 State nominated permanent visa, Skilled Regional (Provisional) 489 Visa, Employer Nomination Scheme 186 Visa, etc.

The States of Australia, i.e. South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory (ACT), etc. also invite the applications from foreign skilled workers for the nomination. The applicants apply for state nomination get the immigration points for the same and subsequently, apply for the desired visa category.

Point Based System

Australia’s point system for skilled migration has become largely popular worldwide. In fact, several other countries have either adopted or planning to adopt the Point based Immigration system of Australia. Australia’s organized online and point based immigration system is the hallmark of Immigration to Australia. This is one of the attraction points for worldwide immigrant workers looking to move to an overseas country for better life and career.

Australia reviews the applicants based on their scored points for the key credentials, i.e. age, work experience, qualification, language ability, etc. The profiles that receive highest points, get the invitation from the immigration authorities, to apply for the visa within 60 days of the receipt of the invitation.

Visa processing time

At a time when most of the countries have extremely difficult visa process or too high visa processing time, Australia has probably kept the shortest PR visa processing time for the applicants.

There are several skilled visas in Australia, which have visa processing time from 6 months to 12 months. Though Australia has reduced the immigration staff in recent past, however, the PR visa processing time of Australia is still quite short compared to many other advanced nations, i.e. USA green card visa.

Startups in Australia require more options in terms of Skilled Immigration and not a close door policy

by By Rajneesh Kumar


Posted on December 1, 2016


Skill Immigration Requirement For Australia

The startups in Australia need more variety and options in terms of foreign skilled workforce as per the StartupAUS Crossroads Report. The decision of tougeher restrictions on 457 visa programs doesn’t seem to have gone well with the startups in the country. It is interesting to note that about 60 percent of the leading startups in Australia are either founded by immigrants or their family members.

Changes announced in 457 visa program

Recently, a few key changes have been made to the 457 visa program. The 457 Visa allows the foreign skilled workers to live and work in Australia for up to 4 years, once they have been sponsored by an approved Australian employer. The key change includes reduction of stay period in Australia to 60 days from 90 days, after the end of employment under 457 Visa Program.

Australians are on priority list

As per Immigration Minister of Australia, Peter Dutton, the step has been taken to reduce competition from overseas skilled workers, for those Australian workers, who are desperately in search of job or employment opportunity. A few intellectuals see the whole proceedings as the impact of the wave against immigration in US post recent presidential elections, which is also a sign of the emergence of strong right wing in most of the advanced nations.

If there is an Australian worker available and willing to get employed in a particular position, he/she would be given the priority, as per the government policy, said Dutton.

Australia needs more sincerity about skilled IT immigration & Entrepreneur Visas

As per the Crossroads report, Australia needs more sincerity and flexibility when it come to immigration of Skilled IT professionals. Moreover, the report also recommends the promotion and enhancement of the Entrepreneur Visa. For now, it is allowed for the founders with minimum AUD $200,000 in third party funding for the plan. The other key thing it recommends is easing the restrictions on 457 Visas for startup ventures.

Report claims that Australia has the potential to become a top global IT player, however, the management challenges in acquiring 457 Visas for the skilled IT professionals are hindering the efforts of the Australian tech organizations. Looking at the relatively new Australian tech system, people with startup experience beyond ten years needs to be invited from overseas. As per the StartupAUS, people with STEM and Entrepreneurial skills are significantly needed in Australia.
