Skilled Nomination Visa - Subclass 190

Generally, people with professional qualifications and trade skills can apply for this visa. In addition, you need to be less than 45 at when you apply for this visa.  Your occupation can be on the MLTSSL or STSOL (Effective from July 1, 2017). This means that the choice of occupations is greater in comparison to the independent skilled visa 189. You are allowed to use not only the top tier of qualifications in demand in Australia(i.e. MLTSSL) but also allowed to use second tier occupations(i.e the occupations on STSOL). 

You have to contact the state that you want to migrate to and follow the procedure for nomination for a particular occupation in that state.  State nomination does not mean a job offer. 

You have to obtain a positive skills assessment from an authority relevant assessing authority.

A points test is undertaken to ensure that you get minimum 60 Points. Points are granted for age, English skills, education, experience(in Australia & Overseas) and a few other factors(Click Here to take the points test). Once you have scored a minimum of 60 points you will submit an expression of interest(EOI) in Skillselect(a government system for selecting people for migration to Australia). You get an additional 5 points if a state nominates. This nomination by the state is not a job offer. After submitting an EOI you will wait for an invitation to apply.

You will also be required to pass a health examination and a character test

Cost is A$3670 for the applicant and approximately half of that for each other person of your family to whom a visa is granted. In addition, there will be the cost of medicals, English tests and agent fee.
