Immigration South Australia has announced temporary closure of their state sponsorship programme

Immigration South Australia has announced closure of their state nomination 190/489 application system from Monday 25 June 2018. As a result no further invitations to apply for South Australia nomination will be given after this date.

All received applications will continue to be processed as normal. You must submit and pay for your application before 25 June 2018. Failure to do so will result in your draft application being deleted.

Immigration South Australia will announce the opening of their nomination programme in the first week of July.

As the points threshold for skilled migration remains inflated, an increasing number of applicants are seeking state sponsorship. Consequently it's becoming more difficult to secure state sponsorship and quotas are being filled quickly.

State sponsorship programmes for Victoria, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales are currently closed. As a result applicants are unable to apply to these states for state sponsorship.

Northern Territory and Tasmania currently remain open to new state nominations.

As General Skilled Migration becomes more difficult it can be beneficial to seek professional advice from a Migration Agent.
