190 Visa

In the Skilled Migration category, the 190 visa subclass is a permanent residence visa that allows you to live and work in Australia on the basis that you have been previously nominated by one of Australia’s seven states or territory government agency.

Similarly to 189 visa, an expression of interest has to be lodged through SkillsSelect to be able to apply, and a points-based assessment has to be undertaken.

Eligibility criteria for 190 visa are the same as the ones for the other Skilled Independent Visa – subclass 189 visa – with the added requirement of having received a formal nomination by a territory government or Australian state agency.
