Tasmanian Skilled Migration State Nomination Program Update

Tasmanian Skilled Migration State Nomination Program Update

Minor adjustment to nomination quotas โ€“ 150 more subclass 190 places available

To help us manage the unexpectedly high demand for Tasmania subclass 190 nomination, the Department of Home Affairs has made a minor adjustment to Tasmaniaโ€™s nomination quotas.

๐ŸŒผ Our subclass 190 nomination quota has been increased by 150 places, while our subclass 491 quota has between reduced by the same amount.

Tasmaniaโ€™s final 2022-23 program year allocation is:

  • Subclass 190 Skilled Nominated visa โ€“ 2,150 places
  • Subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional visa โ€“ 2,100 places

This minor change means that we can ensure nominations are fair and equitable across the program. This adjustment will not have any significant effect upon the competitive threshold for subclass 491 invitation and nomination.

Program status update - no plans to close

The Tasmanian Skilled Migration State Nomination will not close to new registrations of interest or applications for nomination. Invitations to apply for nomination will continue to be issued throughout the remainder of 2022-23 and into the 2023-24 program year.
