South Australia Increases Points Required For State Nomination

South Australia has increased the requirement for state nomination from 80 to 85 points after the overall quota of nominations was achieved under the existing 80 points requirement.

The new points requirement will come into effect from 9 am on 19 April 2017, however, this will not affect applications lodged prior to this time.
