State Nomination

If you are applying for a Subclass 190 or Subclass 491, you will need to receive State or Territory Government nomination.

The Commonwealth Government has provided an unexpected and substantial reduction in visa nomination allocations for the 190 and 491 migration program for 2023-24.

The state and territory government nominations are not linked to the Department’s invitation rounds, for the Subclass 189 Independent category,  and occur independently.

Business Innovation and Investment Program (BIIP) is closed permanently for new applications from 1 July 2024.

Subclass 188 visa holders can still apply for the Permanent Residency (subclass 888) after July 2024.

Below are the allocations for the 2023-24 Migration Program.
