Following a short pause, we are pleased to advise that Victoria will begin issuing invitations and assessing nomination applications for affected business and investor visa subclasses from 18 February 2019.
Please note that an Expression of Interest (EOI) process will be introduced for the following visas:
188 – Business Innovation Stream
188 – Investor Stream
132 – Business Talent (Permanent) visa – Significant Business History stream
132 – Business Talent (Permanent) visa – Venture Capital Entrepreneur stream
Applicants will now need to submit an EOI for the relevant visa subclass in the Department of Home Affairs' SkillSelect and indicate their interest for Victorian nomination.
Applicants do not need to notify Victoria’s Skilled & Business Migration Program that they have submitted an EOI.
Please note that EOIs submitted before 18 February 2019 in the SkillSelect system will not be considered. You will need to resubmit to be considered for Victorian nomination.
Victoria will also begin issuing invitations and assessing nomination applications for the 188 - Significant Investor Stream on 18 February. There are currently no process changes to nomination applications for this visa type.
