State Sponsored Immigration to Australia

How to Immigrate to Australia on the 190 State Sponsored / Nominated Permanent Residency Visa Class

When we research how to immigrate to Australia we’re presented with a plethora of options, visa classes, point score information and details of skills assessments. For many this can be a time of frustration and confusion. If that sounds familiar you’ll be likely wondering what State Sponsored Nomination actually means and how it applies to your individual and unique set of circumstances.




For a free and unbiased consultation as to the best Australian visa pathway solution take our online visa assessment today.

State Sponsored Immigration to Australia Guide
There are two main Permanent Residency Visa classes, the 189 and 190. Both afford the holder and their immediate families Permanent Residency from day one and are designed to lead to full Australian Citizenship and dual nationality.

Benefits of Australian PR
The right to live and work in Australia
Enter and leave the Country without needing any further visas
Access education and Medicare
Access to full financial services as if you were an Australian citizen
After two years you’ll receive further benefits such as social care and the right to sponsor eligible family members in their own visa applications.

The 189 visa allows one to live and work anywhere in Australia from the start and with the 190 visa you have a ‘moral obligation’ to live and work in the State or Territory that sponsors your application.

Can you live in another State on a 190 Visa?
A moral obligation is just that. Many people can and do change their State during these two years although you must always notify and work with the Australian Department of Immigration at this juncture.




What’s the main difference between a 189 and 190 visa?
To be eligible for the 189 visa you’ll need an occupation on what is now called the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List and score at least 60 points on the Australian Immigration points score matrix.

Below you’ll find the most current version of the MLTSSL.

If you don’t have an occupation on the MTSSL you’ll need to look on the Short Skills Occupation List for your occupation. The STSSL contains many more occupations that are in demand ‘locally’ on a State by State basis. You still need to score 60 immigration points but with State Nomination you’ll automatically receive 5 extra points.

Enter your occupation in the search box below to check the most current version of the SSOL.

Therefore, if for example you’ve an occupation on the MTSSL and score 55 points then you’ll be ‘topped up’ to 60 points by applying for a 190 visa instead of a 189. If you’ve an occupation which is only on the SSOL combined list and score 55 points you’ll also receive a 5 point boost to score 60.
If you’re on the SSOL and score 60 points already then you’ll now score 65.

Still confused? Then take our free online visa assessment and talk it through with a specialist in your occupation code.

The individual States and Territories all run their own localised nomination programs each with their own nuances and requirements. Some are straightforward, some require certain occupations to have certain extra points or additional skills, and some go so far as to require a formal job offer to coincide with their State Nomination.

It’s important though not to overthink this stage in the process or get too particularly ‘hung up’ on one particular state. Your Permanent Residency application will likely take at least a year from start to finish and the States and Territories sponsoring those in your occupation code may well change during this time.

State Sponsored Immigration to Australia Step One
The most important step in Australian Immigration is to secure a positive skills assessment. This assessment is Australia’s way of verifying that you are who you say you are and that you have the right skills, qualifications and experience in your chosen occupation. It’s usually not a formal test (although for some skilled trades this is indeed the case), more the collation of an extensive paperwork bundle that provides the legal framework for your case.




Let’s Go! Global has a 100% success rate at Skills Assessment for many occupations.

State Sponsored Immigration to Australia Step Two
Submit an Expression of Interest (“EOI”). During the course of your EOI you’ll be asked to specify certain states and territories in which you are interested.

Australian State Sponsorship Step Three
The waiting game! Australian State Nomination and Sponsorship doesn’t happen overnight although if you’ve been accurate and thorough it should happen within 4 months to a year.

Australian State Sponsorship Step Four
Once a State has selected your application from the pool of other eligible applicants they’ll issue you with an Invitation to Apply. Some States charge a nominal fee for this service of around $300 AUD and it’s here that you’ll have to satisfy any extra criteria laid down by the State such as a declaration of funds or formal job offer.

State Sponsored Immigration to Australia Step Five
Once the Sponsoring State has issued their Nomination it will automatically notify the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection which will then proceed with a formal invitation to apply for the 190 visa.
At this point your Australian Government Fees fall due:

Lead applicant: $3600 AUD
Second applicant: $1980 AUD
Children under 18: $900 AUD
Children over 18: $1980 AUD

Many people question whether their application can be refused even at this late stage and the answer is unfortunately yes, nothing should be taken from granted until your visas are formally issued.

Australian State Sponsorship Step Six
At this point you’ll be issued with a HAP barcode which will enable you and your family to undergo Immigration medicals in your home country.

State Sponsored Immigration to Australia Step Seven
Now comes the time for local police checks from your home country. It’s important you don’t proceed with medicals or police checks until this point because they’ll be classed as invalid.

Australian State Sponsorship Step Eight
More documents! If you thought the required documents for Skills Assessment were immense then the EOI will take this shock to a whole new level. Luckily it’s what we successfully complete for clients each and every day.




State Sponsored Immigration to Australia Step Nine
Congratulations. As you hit the final submit button your Immigration Case Officer will be notified and start to review your case.

Australian State Sponsorship Step Ten
If you’re documents aren’t up to scratch there’s a good chance your application will be closed at this point. If you’re lucky then you’ll be asked for further evidence which could take any form. Remember that the Dept. of Immigration may also examine your social media accounts at this stage.

Australian State Sponsorship Step Eleven
All things being equal you’ll receive an email confirming you’re 190 visa status. You’ll be required to activate your visa within 12 months of the issue date. This doesn’t necessarily mean your emigration, your trip can be for any reason such as a holiday, interview or to view property.

State Sponsored Immigration to Australia Step Twelve
Enjoy your new life in Australia. Simple, right?




Applying for 190 Australian State Sponsored Visa (or 189) is going to be one of the most challenging and stressful chapters in your life yet as many millions before you will testify, when it’s all over you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be so glad you never gave up.
