March Update: ACT (Canberra) and South Australia State Nomination Lists Updates


The ACT (Canberra) Occupation List was updated to incorporate the Department of Home Affairs changes to the list of occupations which we wrote about in our previous blog post.

For sponsorship/nomination from Canberra (the ACT) please remember that you have to complete an EOI and you also have to complete the ACT's "Canberra Matrix" where the ACT awards you points against their own set of criteria. The highest ranked candidates under the Matrix scoring system are selected and invited to apply for ACT 190 nominations. More information about the ACT's system and criteria and list of occupations is available here:


From tomorrow (15th of March Australia time) South Australia will update its list of occupations for sponsorship/nomination for the 190 and 489 visas.

A considerable number of occupations will be added to its lists.

And these occupations will be removed:

Chemical Plant Operator Visual Arts and Crafts Professionals Library Technician Watch and Clock Maker Textile, Clothing and Footwear Mechanic
