If you were not selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination, you do not need to submit another Registration of Interest (ROI). We will continue selecting the best ROIs submitted for each sector from July 2021 onwards over the remaining program year.

Subclass 491 ROIs are currently being assessed with the first group of invitations expected in the coming weeks.
