Victoria’s 2020-21 skilled visa nomination program (subclass 190 and 491)
The interim skilled visa nomination program
As we only have a very limited number of visa nomination places available until full visa nomination allocation numbers are finalised, Victoria will initially run a shorter and more targeted interim skilled visa nomination program (subclass 190 and 491).
For this interim period, we will only select applicants to apply for Victorian visa nomination if their Registration of Interest demonstrates they are working in health or medical research and contributing to Victoria’s economic recovery and/or health response.
Registration of Interest for Victorian State Visa Nomination
To be considered for Victorian visa nomination, you must submit a Registration of Interest for Victorian State Visa Nomination. Applicants who register their interest may then be selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination.
You must submit your Registration of Interest by 5pm AEST, 21 September.
Further information about the 2020-21 Victorian skilled visa nomination program
With limited nomination places available, the program is highly selective and targeted.
We will closely monitor Victoria’s visa nomination program to ensure it is consistent with public health measures, is flexible and does not displace Victorian job seekers, so that Victoria can effectively respond to the immediate and subsequent impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19).
We will provide further information following advice from the Department of Home Affairs after 6 October.
Please note, a Registration of Interest is not an application for Victorian visa nomination. We will only contact you again if you are selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination. There are no set timeframes for when you may be selected.
If you are selected to apply for Victorian visa nomination, you will then need to submit a separate visa nomination application.
