Australia, The Land of Opportunities, attracts highly skilled professionals from across the globe through “The General Skilled Migration” (GSM) program. This Programs works on a point base system, where points are awarded on the basis of an applicant’s age, qualification, years of work experience, English ability. Additional points can be received from States and Territory nominations.
For the purpose of state nominated Skilled Visas, the Department of Home Affairs gives each state and territory, specific annual quotas to nominate applicants for the Skilled nominated visa subclass 190 and Skilled Regional visa subclass 491 visa.
This year on 1st July 2020, the State & Territory nomination program announced that it would remain temporarily closed until the federal government’s allocation of state nomination for year 2020-21 is complete.
