In order to respond to this significant change at short notice, Immigration SA has suspended all applications for state nomination for both the subclass 489 and 190 visas. We expect this will be for a period of two days.
For those state nomination applications that have already been submitted and are affected by the occupation list changes, Immigration SA will endeavour to nominate and invite these applications in SkillSelect before the change takes effect at midnight tonight - 12am (AEST) 19 April 2017. These applications will be processed according to the date of submission and priority will be provided to applicants currently residing in South Australia. In the event that an application is not able to be processed before the occupation list changes are introduced a refund of the Immigration SA application fee will be offered. From 19 April 2017, Immigration SA will not be able to nominate and invite someone to apply for a subclass 190 or 489 visa in these removed occupations.
The 216 occupations to be removed from any state nomination eligibility are listed below. Within the 216 removed occupations, 16 will be still be available under the new Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) but not for state nomination. Further information is available on the DIBP website.
