Victoria's skilled and business nomination programs remain closed to new applications for the 2020-21 program year

This list was updated on 2 July 2018

Our aim is to attract the best global talent to help make our industries be globally competitive. If you think you’ve got what it takes, we could make migrating here much easier with visa nomination.

Extensive research and industry consultation on Victoria’s medium-to-long term labour market needs is done to identify occupations that are eligible for visa nomination. This thorough approach ensures that the right people migrate to Melbourne for the right jobs, and our industries have the skills required to be globally competitive.

Please note:

Assessment criteria

Applications for Victorian visa nomination are assessed with a focus on:

  • your ability to meet the minimum eligibility criteria
  • the demand for individual skills and expertise (and prospects of finding a job in Victoria)
  • the suitability and transferability of your qualifications, skills and experience – including any specialist capabilities – to the needs of Victoria’s labour market, and
  • your commitment to settle in Victoria permanently.  

There is strong competition for Victorian visa nomination and meeting the minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee nomination. For detailed application guidelines and eligibility criteria, see Skilled migration visas.
