Use SkillSelect to make an Expression of Interest for visa nomination.
If you wish to be selected for visa nomination by Victoria, your first step is to make an Expression of Interest (EOI) via SkillSelect.
How does SkillSelect work?
Skilled professionals and business people seeking Victorian visa nomination must make an Expression of Interest (EOI) via SkillSelect. If you are applying for skilled visa nomination (subclasses 190 and 491) after 8 September, you must then submit a Registration of Interest for Victorian State Nomination with Live in Melbourne after making an EOI.
What's the difference between an Expression of Interest and a Registration of Interest?
An Expression of Interest is made on SkillSelect, a system managed by the Commonwealth Government’s Department of Home Affairs. A Registration of Interest is submitted on Live in Melbourne to the Victorian Government and allows us to select the best candidates to apply for Victorian skilled visa nomination.
If you wish to be considered for selection for skilled visa nomination, you must make an EOI before submitting a Registration of Interest for Victorian State Nomination. If selected, you can then apply for Victorian visa nomination.
Selection to apply for visa nomination does not guarantee that you will be nominated. Your application will be thoroughly assessed to ensure your skills and experience meet the needs of Victoria’s economic recovery and health response.
Making an EOI is the first step to skilled visa nomination. You must then submit a Registration of Interest for Victorian State Nomination and be selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination. More information about selection is available on the 2020-21 Skilled Migration Program page.
