What's New

  • Victoria's Skilled Migration Program is now OPEN

    The program provides two visa pathways.

    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)external link.

    As with previous years, applicants will first need to submit a Registration of Interest (ROI) and then be selected on competitive merit to apply for visa nomination.

    Before submitting a ROI, applicants should ensure that they meet all eligibility requirements:

    • Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
    • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491)

    ROIs will be assessed until May 2023.

    Not selected in 2021-22?

    The 2021-22 program was highly competitive with over 15,000 Registrations of Interest submitted. Applicants who were not selected to apply are encouraged to submit a new Registration of Interest for the 2022-23 program.

    Changes for the 2022-23 program

    Onshore and offshore applicants can apply

    In addition to applicants living in Victoria, they will also be selecting applicants living outside Australia for the subclass 190 visa in all eligible occupations.

    For the subclass 491 visa  in addition to applicants living in Victoria, applicants living offshore can apply, noting we are currently prioritising health occupations for subclass 491 visa nominations.

    More eligible occupations

    All occupations on the relevant Department of Home Affairs occupation listexternal link are now eligible, and applicants are no longer required to be using STEMM skills and working in a target sector to apply. For further information on the new eligibility requirements, see:
