If you are currently in South Australia and your visa is about to expire and you have not received an outcome of your state nomination application, you will need to submit an online enquiry to Skilled& Business Migration. Please provide at least 10 business days notice for your application to be flagged for special consideration. It is important to note that Skilled & Business Migration does not guarantee faster processing.
