State Nomination Requirements

The Commonwealth Department of Home Affairs has provided a limited number of visa nomination places to the Government of South Australia up until the Federal Budget is delivered on 6 October 2020.

The state’s allocation of interim 491 and 190 visa nominations are intended to support South Australia’s economic recovery and the public health response.

If you meet the state-nomination requirements listed below, you are invited to lodge an Expression of Interest (EOI) through the Department of Home Affairs SkillSelect system. 

If South Australia is satisfied with your EOI, you will be invited to submit an online application for state-nomination.
