South Australia Nomination Program

 South Australia an exciting place to live, work, and visit. It’s a family friendly destination where you can afford to live, work,enjoy and have more than life has to offer.

 Skilled And Business Migration

South Australia invites the applicants who are highly skilled and qualified to live and work in South Australia provided they get a nomination from the state. The Department of State Development along with Immigration SA (State Government Agency) is responsible for skilled and business migration to South Australia.

Both these departments work with the Australian Government’s Department of Home Affairs to attract eligible skilled and business migrants through state-nominated visa programs. These programs are the pathway to permanent residency in South Australia. The following are done by Immigration SA:

  • Skilled migrants are nominated to meet critical skill shortages in the local labor market
  • Advises Department of Home Affairs when positions are not filled from the local labor pool


In this program, migrants are nominated by regional employers, state or territory government or family members. Priority processing depends upon:

  • Location of family members
  • Availability of employment
  • Business opportunities

 

The Skilled Visa Options

Currently South Australia offers a permanent or provisional visa to help you in settling  your life in Australia. The state nominates you for either of the two visas.

Skilled Nominated Permanent Subclass 190:

Visa Subclass 190 is a permanent visa which allows you to live and work in South Australia for indefinite period. If you get nominated by South Australia for this visa, you will be given 5 extra points to help you qualify for a visa under the Australia Immigration Point Test.

Skilled Regional Provisional Subclass 489:

Visa Subclass 489 is a provisional visa valid up to 4 years and is a pathway to the permanent residency of South Australia. If you get nominated by South Australia for this visa, you will be awarded 10 extra points to help you qualify for a visa under the Australia Immigration Point Test. Also, if you live in South Australia for 2 years and work full-time (35 hour per week) for 1 year of that time, you may be eligible to apply for permanent residency visa.
