1. South Australia announced the state guarantee policy for the new fiscal year, and some occupations are open to overseas applications

Last Wednesday, South Australia announced the state responsibility policy for this fiscal year in advance, and the formal application opening will be at 8 am on 7.20. South Australia has 2600 quotas for 491 and 190 each in this fiscal year. Four channels are opened. The first three are for domestic applicants. They are talent innovation projects, channels for working in South Australia, and channels for local graduates in South Australia. This channel is currently a channel for overseas applicants that is basically not available in other states.

Talent innovation projects are still the top priority. A new stream has been added, including Employment stream, High-skilled in-service applicants stream, Outer Regional South Australia workforce stream, South Australia remote employment applicants, Start up and small business stream, South Australia entrepreneurial small business, High Performing graduate stream South Australia outstanding graduates-refer to specific requirements to be exempt from work experience, Independent talent stream South Australia outstanding comprehensive background applicants

Then there is the category of long-term residence in South Australia. If you are a local graduate or their spouse, you are required to live for three years-any Skill level 1-3 or Carers and Aids occupation work in the past 12 months/working in these occupations but 12 months Can be accumulated in the past three years, 40hs every biweekly. If you are a non-local graduate short-term visa holder, you need to have any job in skill level 1-3 or Carers and Aids in the past 12 months

There are still channels for local graduates in South Australia. The requirements for their work experience after graduation are:

1. At least 20 hours a week, if it is more than 35 hours a week, priority will be given to 190. It is usually sufficient to require the first two of the relevant Anzsco to be the same. Individual nominated occupations require different jobs in the same industry to be considered and applied. Similar for the fiscal year, you need to see the specific requirements of the nominated occupation

2. It is necessary to find relevant work experience for at least 3 months (491 or 190). It depends on the specific requirements of the nominated occupation. Individual occupations may require more than one year.

If you are in the following occupations, you have the opportunity to be exempt from work experience:

-Apply to pass the South Australia Innovative Talent Channel

-Excellent graduates from South Australia, such as research masters or doctors and applicants with high GPA scores, etc.

-Applicant or spouse lives in South Australia for a long time and has a skilled job for more than 12 months

For overseas applicants, some skilled workers and medical and health majors can apply overseas. Although the specific requirements for different occupations are not exactly the same, the requirements are not low and most of them need to be nominated for at least 5 years in the past 8 years. Highly relevant Some have relatively high EOI score requirements, as well as language requirements of four 8 for IELTS.

2. One year master + One year GD, confirmed that you can apply for a 485 work permit for 2 years

This week, we verified from the official website of the Immigration Bureau that Graduate Diploma can be used to apply for PSW, which means that one year of Master + one year of GD, and two years of 485PSW. The same is true for one year of Master and then one year of Graduate Diploma. Of course, GD with longer course time is also possible.

In fact, after the Immigration Bureau changed the relevant legislation after September 19, 2020, we discovered this "loophole". In the old law, the qualification used to satisfy the two-year study must be Bachelor/Master or PhD, while the new law Here, as long as the applicant satisfies the two-year study, the requirement of "The applicant satisfied the Australian study requirement" can be met.

It is now confirmed by the official website of the Immigration Bureau that the 1-year Graduate Diploma+1-year Master’s study status can meet the requirements for applying for 2-year 485. However, the 1-year Master+1-year Diploma cannot meet the requirements, and the 1-year Master+1-year Trade Qualification (such as Certificate 3 in Commercial Cookery) cannot meet the requirements.

3. Canberra sends out Matrix invitation again, and many professions are invited

On July 14th, Canberra issued the second round of matrix invitations for this fiscal year. 128 491 applications were issued in the general application category, and 190 were not issued in this round. The matrix scores of 491 for some common occupations are as follows:

4. Western Australia is expected to issue an invitation next week, Southern Inland in NSW will open applications soon, and Tasmania will start the trial
