The NSW Government’s State Sponsorship October intake has now closed for the Subclass 190 Visa. 1000 applications were quickly generated and applicants have now been contacted by the NSW Government. Information is now available on upcoming 2015 intakes.
NSW State Sponsorship continues to be competitive and in high demand. The October 2014 intake has now closed as the 1000 application limit was reached. The following statement has been published on the NSW State Government website:
NSW is a highly competitive destination for skilled migrants and as such, demand for NSW nomination under this visa program far exceeds the number of places available. In recognition of ongoing high demand and to ensure that places allocated under the program are well-balanced and aligned to the skills needs of the state’s economy, NSW is continuing to implement operational and policy reforms. The application process will open again in February 2015. This will be after an analysis of the intakes to date which will determine the approach to future intakes. Information on future intakes will be posted on the website in January 2015.
The NSW Government has indicated that there will be another intake in February 2015, with information to be released in January 2015. There will be up to 2000 application spaces available between February – June 2015.
NSW State Sponsorship is not the only option for migration to Australia. We encourage all interested applicants to make an enquiry to our migration agents, as you may have faster and better alternative pathways to obtain Permanent Residency in Australia.
