Skilled Nominated Visa Subclass 190 Checklist: A Quick Guide

Posted by admin on October 14, 2022

The skilled nominated visa subclass 190 allows skilled workers to be nominated to live and work permanently as residents of Australia. This visa is based on a points system and the skilled workers are nominated by the state. This means that a person has to be nominated by a territory’s government agency or a state of Australia for them to be able to apply. The nomination can be obtained after submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) on Skill Select (the online immigration system of Australia). You can also include your family members in the application for your visa if they are eligible. This visa can be applied only upon being invited.
