New South Wales is the home to Sydney, Newcastle and plenty of sun and surf. The state has also become home to a growing amount of Skilled Nominated Visa holders with the numbers applicants exceeding demand. The popularity of NSW is apparent with the state holding the largest state skills visa nomination program in Australia.
There is currently 4,000 places available for Skilled Nominated migration (Subclass 190). Upon a recent review the NSW Trade and Investment have announced that as from February 2015 the current process will change to a system that invites applicants on a selection-based process, Skillselect.
The reasons behind this change to the system is:
a) to ensure the skills of the applicant are aligned with job criteria and migration program
b) to streamline the process to make the system more efficient for application processing
