Victoria’s 2020-21 Victorian skilled visa nomination program (subclass 190 and 491) will open on Tuesday 8 September, 2020.

The Victorian skilled visa nomination program is changing in 2020-21 in response to challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, with a focus on Victoria’s economic recovery. The Department of Home Affairs has provided Victoria with a limited number of state nomination visa places until the Federal Budget on 6 October 2020.

You must now register your interest on Live in Melbourne and be selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination. All applicants must also ensure they meet the relevant visa nomination eligibility criteria before submitting a Registration of Interest.

Registration of Interest for Victorian State Visa Nomination

To be considered for selection to apply for Victorian visa nomination, you must submit a Registration of Interest for Victorian State Visa Nomination.

Please note that a valid and up to date Expression of Interest (EOI) submitted on the Department of Home Affairs’ SkillSelect website is a prerequisite for submitting a Registration of Interest. The information you provide in your Registration of Interest will help us determine whether you are selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination.

The skilled visa nominated program up until 5 October 2020

Victoria will initially run a shorter and more targeted interim skilled nomination visa (subclass 190 and 491) program from 8 September 2020 until 5 October 2020.

For this interim period, we will only select applicants to apply for Victorian visa nomination if their Registration of Interest demonstrates they are working in health or medical research and are contributing to Victoria’s economic recovery and/or health response.

Selection to apply for Victorian visa nomination

The skilled migration program has been designed to respond to the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic. To be eligible to be considered for selection to apply for Victorian visa nomination, you must:

  1. already be living in Victoria
  2. already be working in Victoria (minimum six months employment)
  3. work in a highly skilled occupation in health or medical research, which supports Victoria's economic recovery and/or health response

You must submit your Registration of Interest by 5pm AEST, 21 September.

As places are limited and you will be competing against the best and brightest already living and working in Victoria, simply meeting these requirements does not guarantee selection. You will be asked to provide critical information about yourself and how you are contributing to Victoria’s economic recovery and/or health response when completing your Registration of Interest for Victorian State Visa Nomination.

Please note - selection to apply for Victorian visa nomination is not a guarantee of nomination. All applications will be thoroughly assessed to ensure each candidate’s skills and experience meet the needs of Victoria’s economic recovery and/or health response.

Applying for Victorian visa nomination

If you are selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination after submitting a Registration of Interest for Victorian State Visa Nomination, you will receive an email asking you to submit a nomination application through the Live in Melbourne website.

You must also meet the nomination criteria for the relevant visa:

Please note, a Registration of Interest is not an application for Victorian visa nomination. We will only contact you again if you are selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination. There are no set timeframes for when you may be selected.

If you are selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination, you will then need to submit a separate visa nomination application.
