1. NSW 190 Accounting/IT/Engineering returns with a large number of hot spots! 491 Out-of-state only needs a career assessment?

There are basically no changes to the application requirements. There is a new need to meet the requirements of living in NSW for at least 3 months or-there are currently nominated occupation-related jobs in NSW that meet the federal skilled immigration requirements. Previously, NSW had local residency requirements. There is no minimum time limit. The invitation for this fiscal year is still awarded to those with high scores. There are many occupations that can apply for, but I am not sure which occupations the state government focuses on. The occupation list is divided into Manager/professional/technicians and trades workers/community and personal service workers.

We mainly focus on the professional category:

Accounting, auditing, architecture, and graphic design have returned; popular and common majors in many projects; preschool and middle school teachers have also returned to the list; of course there are registered nurses, as well as social workers; several popular ICT fields are also on the list.

The more common occupations in the Manager category are:

1331 – Construction Managers

1332 – Engineering Managers

1411 – Cafe and Restaurant Managers

The more common occupations in the skilled trade category are:

3111 – Agricultural Technicians

3131 – ICT Support Technicians

3212 – Motor Mechanics

3513 – Chefs

3514 – Cooks

The occupations of community and personal service workers are:

4114 – Enrolled Nurses


NSW 491 is still three branches, the first branch of working and living locally (at least 12 months) and the second branch of remote local graduates, the requirements are basically unchanged.

The third branch is simplified to the branch "I am skilled in an occupation required in Regional NSW" that has skills in remote areas. This branch is for “Be currently residing in an Australian state or territory” for applicants currently residing in an Australian state or territory, and the requirement is only to live in a certain state/territory in Australia, and there is an occupational assessment for the nominated occupation in the list, and it is not stated. other requirements. But I would like to remind everyone that the state government level does not set too many rigid requirements, which is equivalent to giving RDA, that is, the local remote government great discretion. It does not rule out that RDA sets additional requirements for individual occupations, or it may be a fight for scores. work experience.

NSW 491 has set up new submission months, which are August and October in 2021, and then January and March in 2022. Invitations will be issued within 7 days after the round of submission window is closed.

Regarding the occupation list, the first branch uses a state-wide unified list alone, and the second and third branches share a single list, but each RDA sets different occupations that can be applied for.

2. Victoria announces important invitation areas; Tasmania will be open within 1-2 weeks, and the application requirements remain unchanged

The ROI application has been opened this fiscal year, but Victoria, which has not yet issued the first invitation, opened its first presentation this week. Although it is only half an hour, there are still a lot of important and key information. Let’s take a look:

1. The first round of ROI invitations will be issued in early August, and the government will continue to issue ROI invitations every 4-6 weeks until June 30 next year. The submitted ROI application will also be valid until June 30 next year (that is, within this fiscal year).

2. The seven major areas of the Target Sector will get their own approximate quotas according to the percentages in the pie chart, and the relatively important areas are more prioritized rather than evenly distributed. Most of the quota (43%) will still be allocated to the Health field.

3. The state government has received more than 3000 ROIs. ROI invitations are selected in order of EOI scores from high to low. Those with the highest scores in the same field will be awarded, unless they are exceptional talents. And emphasized that this fiscal year will give priority to or guarantee as many medical-related occupations as possible to cope with the needs of Covid. Everyone should pay attention to the effective ROI of each applicant’s function

4. Only those who have STEMM technical jobs in the seven major target industries may be invited. If the application does not meet this basic requirement, it may be directly removed from the beginning. Of course, after submitting the ROI, the work in related fields must be maintained. If there is a change, the ROI application should be revoked in time.

3. Invited by ACT matrix, the first small business 190

This week, Canberra continued to issue Matrix invitations steadily. The small business category issued 190 invitations for the first time, and the general applicant categories 190 and 491 were issued. It also updated the latest review and quota usage.

In this fiscal year, Canberra took more than 600 state quotas for invitations. As of Wednesday, 90 491 and 54 190 have been approved, leaving 1310 491 quotas and 546 190 quotas. Of the 491 applications that have been reviewed, 90 have been approved and 10 have been rejected. Of the 190 applications that have been reviewed, 54 have been approved and 8 have been rejected.

Also this week, the PMSOL shortage occupation list added three more occupations, so far the total number has reached 44. All pharmacists are added this time, namely the hospital direction, the retail direction and the industry direction. The needs of pharmacists under the epidemic are self-evident. This addition should be related to the government's immediate need to ask pharmacists to help vaccinate. Although this list is mainly for employer guarantees, we have seen that from visa processing to entry exemption to the list of some states, the occupations on the list are all given priority!
