IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa – Closure of ACT (Capital City: Canberra) nomination program to overseas applicants
Effective immediately (13 September 2016 at 4pm AEST) applications for ACT nomination will not be accepted from overseas residents.
If your client is living overseas you will not be able to commence an application for ACT nomination of a Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa until the program reopens in 2017.
If you have an application for ACT nomination currently ‘in progress’, the application must be submitted, and payment made, before midnight tonight, 13 September 2016 (AEST). You must submit a complete application e.g. all supporting documents attached, as additional documentation will not be accepted after lodgement.
This action does not affect Canberra based applicants. You are still able to lodge an application for ACT nomination of the Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa if your client meets the current nomination criteria.
