NSW State Sponsorship Processing Update

The NSW State Government Trade & Investment section launched a new website last week.  The following message appears on the new website:

NSW anticipates nominating another 2,000 applicants between February-June 2015.

This program is one of many visa options and NSW encourages potential applicants to explore alternative pathways as the program will not be able to accommodate all eligible candidates.

For more information about alternative pathways, please submit an enquiry via our online form or call 02 8205 7555.  Our Migration Agents are here to help you at our Sydney office.
