What is state nomination for business? 

State nomination enables state governments to attract successful business owners and investors to the state, which in turn supports job creation, business investment and enhances industry capability.

All business visas require state government nomination.

State nomination does not automatically result in the grant of a visa. Your application must also be assessed by the Department of Home Affairs against a number of visa-specific requirements. You will only be granted a visa if all requirements are met.
