Processing times for state nomination of skilled and business migrants vary across visa types.

Immigration SA makes every effort to process all nominations quickly.

If during assessment we discover more information is needed, processing will take longer.

Please be aware that some services relating to Immigration SA’s nomination and assessment process may be impacted by COVID-19. 

Immigration SA will notify you or the authorised recipient by email once a decision has been reached.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

please note that details for visa type 132, 888 and 405 are not provided.
