Good news for migrants waiting for skilled migration opportunity in Australia. Under South Australia Skilled and Business Migration Program, South Australia is going to nominate offshore applicants for over 470 occupations. Isn’t it exciting?
South Australia is a state in the southern part of the country. Adelaide, Gawler, Mount Gambier, and Mount Barker are some major cities of the state. Every year, it generates multiple job opportunities for locals and offshore candidates.
South Australian Skilled and Business Program
South Australia has opened its skilled migration program for the financial year 2022-23 and has started getting positive response from offshore and onshore applicants. The South Australian Government has released a revised occupation list to give work opportunity in several sectors facing shortage of workers. Only skilled migrants will get priority who have work experience in in-demand industries, such as Engineering, Health, Trades, Agribusinesses and growing industries.
How to Look Forward to Grab the Opportunity
Applicants who are currently living offshore and seeking to move to South Australia can use SkillSelect to create an Expression of Interest or EOI. As your EOI will be reviewed by the South Australian Government, you may get invitation for state nomination for Subclass 190 (Skilled Nominated Visa, permanent) or Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional Visa, provisional). Applicants get the invitations based on their merits-
- Experience in the occupation
- English language skills
- EOI points
After nomination, you get 14 days to submit your application. At the time of invitation, make sure that all the information in your SkillSelect EOI is up to date.
Some Common Requirements for Nominations are-
|Applicants living in South Australia may apply for almost all streams in the program
Applicants who live in Australia but not in South Australia can apply through the “Talent & Innovator Employment Stream”
