The Victorian Skilled Visa Migration Nomination Program is now open for the 2023 – 24 program year. Victoria’s Skilled Visa Nomination program is open to applicants living in Victoria and overseas. The program provides skilled migrants with a pathway to permanent residency in Victoria.
- The Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) is a permanent visa for skilled migrants to live and work anywhere in Victoria.
- The Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) is for skilled migrants to live and work in regional Victoria and provides a pathway to permanent residency through the Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional) visa (subclass 191).
To be considered for selection for Victorian skilled visa nomination, you must first submit a Registration of Interest (ROI).
Skilled Visa Nomination for the 2023-2024 program
Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491)
To be eligible to apply for Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) nomination in the 2023-24 program, onshore applicants must be living and working in regional Victoria at the time of nomination. If you have submitted a subclass 491 ROI in 2022-23 and were not selected, you will need to submit a new ROI if you are still eligible.
Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
There are no changes to the subclass 190 visa nomination program.
If you submitted a subclass 190 Registration of Interest in 2022-23 and were not selected, you do not need to submit a new ROI unless the information provided has changed. In addition to your EOI, please check your partner points and annual salary responses in your existing ROI and confirm they are correct. If they are not correct, please withdraw the existing ROI and submit a new one.
A Registration of Interest is not an application for Victorian visa nomination. The program is very competitive and there is no set timeframe for when you may be selected.
Your ROI will remain in the system for selection until it is withdrawn or selected. The program will close in early 2024 at a date to be confirmed.
