The South Australian government has announced that to complete system updates for the new program year they will be closing the General Skilled Migration (GSM) state nomination 190/489 application system from 9 am on Monday 24 June.
The full announcement is below:
To complete system updates for the new program year Immigration SA will be closing the General Skilled Migration (GSM) state nomination 190/489 application system from 9 am on Monday 24 June and will re-open in the first week of July (the date and time will be confirmed at the start of July).
If you have commenced a 190/489 application, you will need to submit & pay for the application prior to the system being closed.
From 9am on 24 June, incomplete applications will be deleted, this includes applications that have been “saved but not submitted” and applications that have been “submitted but are still awaiting payment”.
Processing times for submitted applications are available here.
This isn’t a surprising announcement, and the downtime will enable the South Australian government to make the necessary adjustments to their systems in preparation for the new migration year which commences 1st July 2019.
With the new migration year, we’re also expecting an update the Australian Skilled Occupations lists. We’ll publish this updated list as soon as we have it.
