Skilled Nominated Permanent Visa Subclass 190

Subclass 190 Skilled Independent Visa

When you apply for a Subclass 190 Skilled Independent Visa, you may be either inside Australia or abroad. You would require a substantive visa or a Bridging A, B, or C visa in order to submit a lodgement from within Australia. When you apply from within Australia, you will be granted a bridging visa, allowing you to stay in the country while your application is being processed.

General Requirements for Subclass 190

  • Your occupation is on a relevant occupation list;
  • You meet the required points for the visa you intend to lodge (65 points is the minimum);
  • Points are comprised of a number of factors such as age, qualifications, English fluency, work experience in Australia and overseas, qualifications obtained in Australia, state sponsorship, partner’s qualifications;
  • Your age must be between 18 and 45 inclusive. Different points are awarded to different age groups;
  • Have a positive skills assessment (valid for three years) of your qualifications; and 
  • Undertook an English language test (IELTS, OET, TOEFL, iBT, PTE Academic or Cambridge English: Advanced) and achieved the required score. 

Steps in the process

  1. Lodgement of the Expression of Interest (EOI) – The EOI is a system which gives the Government the tools to prioritise and rank prospective migrants in order of merit, selecting the ‘brightest and best’ migrants and/or candidates to fill labour market shortages. It also gives the Government the tools to tweak the type of occupations most needed, curb those occupations where there are too many applications and manage the general mix of occupations accepted in each program year.
  2. Receive an invitation from the Department of Home Affairs;
  3. Lodgement of the Visa application within 60 days of receiving the invitation.
