Step 3: Confirm acceptance of visa nomination offer within four months
Victorian visa nomination is valid for four months from the date of the nomination notification email. Within this time period you will need to:
- lodge an Expression of Interest (EOI) through SkillSelect
- select Victoria as your preference, and
- notify the Victorian Government of this by providing your EOI ID.
SkillSelect is the Australian Government’s online system that enables skilled workers interested in migrating to Australia to record their details to be considered for a skilled visa through an EOI. Visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection's SkillSelect to find out more information.
If you have registered your EOI on SkillSelect and you are nominated by the Victorian Government, you will automatically receive an invitation to apply from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, subject to the number of limited positions available.
If we do not receive your valid EOI ID within the four-month period, your application will expire and your file will be closed.
