What is state nomination?

Some visas require you to have nomination from a state or territory government, or sponsorship from an eligible relative. The Victorian Government offers state nomination to selected overseas skilled workers and business people with skill-sets and business acumen required in Victoria.

State nomination provides support for your application for some General Skilled Migration or Business visas. There is no charge for Victorian state nomination.

Victorian Government nomination is NOT a visa application; it can only assist you in meeting the requirements for Australian visas. To apply for a visa you must contact the Depatment of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) which manages the Australian visa application and approval process. State nomination does not guarantee you will be granted a visa.

Skilled visa nomination

The Victorian Government can nominate highly skilled and employable professionals and tradespeople with occupations, skills and experience that are hard to come by in Victoria’s labour market. Victoria participates in the following visa nomination programs:

Skilled Nominated (190) visa

Skilled Regional (489) visa

Victoria’s Occupation Lists identify eligible occupations and minimum requirements to apply for state nomination including English language and work experience requirements, and specialisations.

Limited nomination places are available and Victorian visa nomination is only offered to the most highly skilled and employable applicants. Refer to Victoria’s Assessment Criteria for detailed information about how nomination applications are assessed for Victoria.

Business visa nomination

The Victorian Government can nominate business visa applicants to encourage a particular business or business person to Australia.

All Business, Innovation and Investment visas require state government nomination.

See the list of Business, Innovation and Investment visa types on the Business visas page.

Other sponsorship
