To be considered for NSW nomination, at a minimum, you must meet the following basic criteria:
Visa eligibility: You must meet all visa requirements outlined by Home Affairs for this visa
Skills assessment: You must have a valid skills assessment in an occupation on the eligible skilled occupation list
Residency: You must be either currently residing:
- in NSW and have continuously resided in NSW for a minimum period of six months; or
- offshore and have continuously resided offshore for a minimum period of six months
The NSW target sectors are specific industry sectors that have been identified bydata research as having critical skills shortages in NSW. They include;
· Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
Although all validly submitted SkillSelect EOIs will be considered during an invitation round, priority is given to EOIs in these target sectors.
High ranking EOIs in occupations outside of the NSW target sectors maybe considered during invitation rounds; however, it’s crucial to understand that the odds of receiving an invitation are exceptionally low due to high demand and limited spots. Therefore, we strongly recommend exploring all other migration pathways and not relying solely on a potential invitation from NSW.
