The Victorian Government has a formal agreement with the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), in regards to skilled sponsored and skilled regional sponsored visas.

As part of this agreement, there are limits on the number of sponsored positions based on a quota per occupation. In addition to this there is also an overall cap on the total number of applicants who can be sponsored each year.

For 2010-2011 Victoria is able to sponsor 4,500 visa applicants, which includes both primary and secondary applicants.

The Victorian Government State Sponsorship Eligibility list provides information on occupations eligible for consideration for state sponsorship under the Skilled-Sponsored (176) visa and the Skilled-Regional Sponsored (475 and 487) visa, including specialisations and requirements. The latest list can be found here.
