WA State Sponsorship
The WA Government has made changes to the requirements for the WA State Nominated Migration Program (SNMP) for applications lodged after 1 July 2023.
The changes build on the current relaxation of requirements, making it easier for skilled migrants to connect with WA jobs and include:
equal invitation ranking for Interstate and Overseas candidates;
prioritised invitations for candidates with an occupation deemed critical in a WA industry sector (as per the WA State nomination invitation ranking system);
reduced employment requirements for candidates invited through a WA building and construction industry sector occupation (as classified on the WA State nomination Occupation lists).
Western Australia have released their occupation lists and requirements for this WA state sponsorship program. Invitation rounds for the 2023-24 program year are anticipated to commence in August 2023.
