Queensland State Government Suspends Skilled Visa Nominations

As we begin to venture closer to the end of the current migration intake year (1st July 2016 – 30 June 2017), Australian states are starting to see their allocation ceilings for certain visa types being filled.

Yesterday, Business and Skilled Migration Queensland (BSMQ) announced that they have temporarily suspended the acceptance of all applications for Queensland Skilled Visa Nominations under the State Nominated scheme Subclass 190 & 489, due to having reached their DIBP allocated ceiling.

If you currently have a paid application with BSMQ that has not been finalised, you can either choose to:

stay in the queue to be processed once applications have been reopened OR
request a refund and your application will be withdrawn.

If you have submitted an EOI with Skillselect that has not been considered, your EOI is no longer valid and you will be required to resubmit an EOI once the application process has been reopened.

Occupations List And Legislative Instrument Conflicts Causing Confusion

Please note that there may be changes made to the Queensland Skilled Occupation list and only EOIs meeting new criteria will be considered.
