Business and Skilled Migration Queensland (BSMQ) has announced a temporary suspension for the acceptance of all applications for Queensland Skilled Visa Nominations under the State Nominated scheme Subclasses 190 and 489, due to having reached their DIBP allocated ceiling.
- applicants who have a paid, unfinalised application with BSMQ can choose either to remain in the queue OR request a refund.
- EOIs submitted with SkillSelect that have not yet been considered, will no longer be valid. Applicants will be required to resubmit an EOI once the application process has been reopened.
- there may also be changes made to the Queensland Skilled Occupation list. Only EOIs meeting new criteria will be considered.
- BSMQ will advise shortly as to when the nomination process will reopen.
