NSW latest statement on skilled visas.
The information NSW has provided for skilled visa applicants is short and to the point. For skilled work regional 491 visas they have so few places available they will only be offered to people who already applied during the 2019-2020 financial year. For skilled nominated 190 visas existing applications will be considered but there is still time to submit an application if you are working in one of the nominated health, ICT or engineering occupations and living in NSW already.
They haven’t set any dates for when invitation might go out. Hopefully there will be more places made available next month but keep in mind that NSW is always the most competitive and therefore most difficult state to receive a skilled nomination in.
