Good news to share with everyone who are currently living with the NSW lockdown restrictions and that is the NSW State Government have now released their Skilled Occupation List! Not only are there over 80 occupations listed, but many of the occupations also listed couldn’t previously be considered for permanent residency.
Therefore, if you are working in an occupation that is on the short-term list and doesn’t have options for permanent residency through your employer, the 190 visa could be your ticket to secure your Australian permanent residency.
However, please be aware it will be competitive as it’s a points-based application and the more points you gain, the more likely it is that you’ll see an invitation.
To be considered you must be working in NSW in your nominated skilled occupation or have genuinely resided in NSW for a minimum of three months. Therefore, this is not an option for those currently living overseas.
Therefore, NOW is the perfect time to arrange your skills assessment whilst lockdown is currently in play to allow time to collate the relevant documentation and evidence.
Out of the darkness of the pandemic, this could be your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow to secure your permanent residency in Australia!
An invitation is not guaranteed unless you can achieve the highest possible migration points.
There is no information on the number of invitations that will be issued for each of the occupations.
