Perth Migration advice for skilled nominated visa subclass 190

Updated: Jan 10, 2023

A brief overview of the skilled nominated visa subclass 190


The skilled nominated visa subclass 190 is a visa designed for applicants who possess a relevant skill/trade that is in demand in Australia. This is important. The skilled nominated subclass 190 visa allows the visa holder to work and live in Australia as a permanent resident.


Having a skilled nominated visa subclass 190 has its benefits. These include being able to work without restrictions in Australia, and if eligible and after a period of time has lapsed, be entitled to apply for Australian citizenship. There is also the benefit of being able to sponsor family relatives to migrate to Australia on a permanent basis.


Important steps to take to obtain an Australian skilled nominated visa subclass 190


The first step is to ensure that your job or occupation is in demand in Australia at the time you wish to apply for the skilled nominated visa subclass 190. Although a simple step, most people find this task very confusing.


The second step is to ensure you have obtained all the relevant skills assessments applicable to your job/occupation. It may be easy to know your skill/trade if someone asked you, such as chef, lawyer, and nurse. However, it may not be so obvious to know whether your skill/trade satisfies all the eligibility requirements of the skilled nominated visa subclass 190. When applying for a skilled nominated visa subclass 190, it is paramount to be assessed for the purposes of the skilled nominated visa subclass 190 application. Without undertaking the relevant skills assessments, it is highly likely that a visa applicant for the subclass 190 visa will not be eligible at all to be granted this visa if applied for, and the application would highly likely encounter delay and/or be refused.


The third step is to then lodge what is known as an Expression of Interest or “EOI.” Think of this as basically asking for permission to apply for the skilled nominated visa subclass 190. Without this invitation by the Australian Government, you will not be eligible to apply for the skilled nominated visa subclass 190.


The fourth step (when you are invited e.g. nominated) is to then apply for the skilled nominated visa subclass 190. It is essentially a form filling exercise. You may benefit from appointing an immigration lawyer from our law firm, BMS LAW, if you do not understand the form, do not have time to fill in the form, or if there are other reasons which prevent you from accurately completing the skilled nominated visa subclass 190 application.


The fifth step is to ensure that you attach all relevant documents to your skilled nominated visa subclass 190 application for consideration. It is a very simple task yet many individuals who attempt their visa application without assistance, get wrong. Consider appointing an immigration lawyer if you do not know what to attach to your skilled nominated visa subclass 190 application.


Although a very simple 5 step process, many people struggle to get it right.
