2020-21 visa nomination program update

The Department of Home Affairs has just announced that it has provided a limited number of visa nomination places to the Victorian Government up until the Federal Budget is delivered on 6 October 2020.
This is mainly to help support Victoria’s economic recovery and the public health response as the government prepares to re-open with new policies and nomination criteria.

The visa nomination places also apply to every other Australian state.

If you were thinking of applying for an Expression of Interest (EOI), we do advise you to go forward with this application so that you’re ready once more information becomes available. Our visa team can help lodge your EOI should you need our assistance.
