Australia is known for its advanced economy, Democratic Government, High living standards, world class cities, and fantastic natural beauty. All these factors make it a first choice for overseas immigrants. Apart from all these features, Australia’s well structured and organized Point Based Immigration System is also known for inviting quality migrants in the country at rather faster way. As one more step to make its immigration system faster and diverse Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) has launched a latest NSW nomination program in the month of February, 2015. The main objective of the NSW skilled visa program is to boost the economy, productivity, and development of NSW.
The NSW program selects the candidate from SkillSelect (Online Immigration System of DIBP) for nomination. The top ranked candidates get the invitation to apply for Visa 190 in Australia. In case you are also interested to move to Australia under the NSW program, we will update you in this article about all the formalities and the process you need to follow.

In order to get selected for NSW immigration, the applicants would require fulfilling the following criteria:
There are two main occupation categories in the NSW 190 visa program, w.e.f. July 2015, which are:
(Note: With effect from April 19, 2017, Australian Government has replaced the old Occupation lists, i.e. SOL & CSOL with new Skilled Occupation lists, i.e. Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) & Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).
The visa applicants, eligible to nominate an occupation from STSOL, also have access to some occupations in MLTSSL. Hence, both the lists (STSOL & MLTSSL) have been combined to form a new Combined List of Eligible Skilled Occupations and hence, there is no separate STSOL list.)
However, the candidates matching the NSW 190 List will be selected on priority.
