The South Australian government has decided to allow a set number of interim allocation places for the State’s General Skilled and Business Migration program for 2020/21, which will be prioritised to support South Australia’s economic and public health recovery. Later in the year, the full number of allocations will be revealed.


Due to limited number of available nominations,South Australia’s program requirements and application processes for the General Skilled and Business programs are currently being finalised, with an intention of applications being open in late August 2020.


According to the Department of Home Affairs, applications will be prioritised based on the following:

High quality applications within the Business Innovation and Investment Program, with those who have already lodged an ‘Intention to Apply’ given priority consideration.

Applicants critical to supporting a state/territory response to the COVID19 pandemic, including individuals providing critical or specialist medical services, critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services; or delivering services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery.

Early consideration to onshore applicants that satisfy the above criteria.
