Skilled Migration – Sponsored Visa (subclass 190)
Applications under the 190 State Sponsored Visa category are subject to a points test based on a variety of factors. Applicants who apply for a 190 State Sponsored visa are awarded an additional five points for selecting this option. Although a permanent visa, it is a condition of state sponsorship that you reside in the sponsoring state for the first two years of your residence in Australia.
In order to be eligible for a 190 State Sponsored visa, applicants must:
- have at least 65 points
- be less than 45 years of age at the time of invitation to apply
- meet the health, character and English language requirements
- have a positive skills assessment in an occupation wanted by Australia
If you meet the above requirements, an Expression of Interest (EOI) can be lodged with the Department of Home Affairs (DOHA); once the EOI has been selected and the applicant is invited to apply, an application for migration can be lodged with DOHA.
This is a permanent visa that is valid for five years from the date of visa grant.
