NSW State Nomination - Subclass 491 Visa
There are two pathways to NSW state nomination for the Subclass 491 Visa.
Pathway 1 – Apply directly to Investment NSW if you have an established work history with a regional NSW-based employer.
To apply under this pathway, you must be currently living and working in a designated regional area of NSW and have continuously done so for the past 12 months.
Your qualifying skilled employment in the twelve months immediately before applying must be:
With a single regional NSW-based employer; and
In your nominated (or closely related) occupation; and
Deemed skilled by NSW; and
Paid a minimum of the TSMIT salary level of $70,000 (prorated if under 38 hours per week) from your qualifying employer in your nominated (or closely related) occupation.
Pathway 2 – Be invited to apply by Investment NSW.
NSW have advised they will shortly begin accepting direct applications for 'Pathway 1' and commence invitation rounds for 'Pathway 2'.
State Nomination is exceptionally competitive. To understand your options, book a consultation with one of our Registered Migration Agents today.
