PUBLISHED: 12 SEPTEMBER 2023
The 2023-24 program is now open to applicants living in Victoria and overseas and provides skilled migrants with a pathway to permanent residency in Victoria. To be considered for a state nomination you must submit a Registration of Interest (ROI).
Not selected in 2022-23?
Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) changes
To be eligible to apply for Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) nomination in the 2023-24 program, onshore applicants must be living and working in regional Victoria at the time of nomination. Some outer suburbs of Melbourne are included in the regional zones by the Department of Home Affairs.
As a result of this change, if you submitted a subclass 491 ROI in 2022-23 and were not selected, you will need to submit a new ROI if you are still eligible.
Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
There are no changes to the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) nomination program. If you submitted a subclass 190 Registration of Interest in 2022-23 and were not selected, you do not need to submit a new ROI unless the information provided has changed.
In addition to your EOI, please check your partner points and annual salary responses in your existing ROI and confirm they are correct. If they are not correct, please withdraw the existing ROI and submit a new one.
How do I know if my ROI is active?
You can check if your ROI is active via the Live in Melbourne portal.
Login to your account > Applications > Click into the relevant NFR number > If active, the status will show ‘Received’.
A Registration of Interest is not an application for Victorian visa nomination. The program is very competitive and there is no set timeframe for when you may be selected.
Your ROI will remain in our system for selection until it is withdrawn or selected. The program will close in early 2024 at a date to be confirmed.
