Australian State Sponsorship Multiple EOI
in ,

Seeking Australian State Sponsorship Just Got A Little Easier

Historically when completing an EOI via Skillselect, if you were happy to be considered for state sponsorship (which often brings with it increased points and more opportunities for migration). You needed to include a separate EOI for each state that you wished to be considered for sponsorship by.

A recent change at the beginning of the month means that migrants can now select ‘Any’, one, or multiple States or Territories they wish to be nominated by within the one EOI. This means you no longer need to create multiple EOI’s; one for each state or territory making the EOI process a much more straight forward one.

EOI Any State Sponsor - Skillselect
From the 6th July, migrants can now select ANY state rather than lodging multiple EOIs for each state

What is a State Sponsored visa in Australia?

The Australian State Sponsored Visa, often referred to as the Skilled – Nominated Visa (subclass 190) is for skilled workers who are nominated by a state or territory. Unlike an Employer-sponsored (482 Visa), this is a permanent visa meaning that it lets you stay in Australia indefinitely.

State Sponsored visas are a popular visa choice for those applicants struggling to get the necessary points required to apply independently of a sponsor (such as the 189 Skilled Independent Visa).

With a state sponsorship, if you were invited to apply for a Subclass 190 (Skilled — Nominated) visa and the nominating State or Territory government agency has not withdrawn the nomination at the time of the invitation, you will gain an extra 5 points towards your overall points score.

For those hovering around the 60 point mark (or those applying under occupations with a large amount of competition), this can make the difference between being able to qualify for a visa or not.

Hi Mark – Thanks for the above detail. You release details behind the number of visas issues each month and the number of points individuals have for the Skilled Independent Visa – Do you have this info for the Subclass 190 or would you be able to point me where to find it? Thanks a lot!
