Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190) - Tasmania

Nomination requirements – Migration Tasmania

Skilled Migration Tasmania offer a range of pathways for skilled candidates to apply for state nomination. Each pathway has a clearly defined set of minimum requirements and attributes required of a candidate.

Meeting the minimum nomination requirements published on this website does not guarantee that you will be offered Tasmanian nomination. The Australian Government sets a nomination quota for the state each year, which limits the number of candidates that can be nominated.

Only the most competitive Registrations of Interest will be selected to be invited to apply for nomination.

Candidates nominated for a Subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa will not be nominated for a permanent Subclass 190 Skilled Nominated visa in the future. The Subclass 491 visa provides a pathway to permanent residency through the Subclass 191 Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional) visa.

If you, or any family members (including those who don't apply for nomination with you), owe fees to Tasmanian Government agencies, such as for education or health, the debt must be paid or arrangements for payment must be made prior to seeking nomination. You will not be eligible for nomination until the debt has been paid or a payment plan has been accepted by the agency.
