The Federal Government continues to have ultimate authority over Australia’s immigration policy, including decisions on visa applications as well as the distribution of open positions within program streams.
A restricted number of posts for its state and territory-nominated skilled, business innovation, and investor visa subclasses are provided by the federal government to the NSW government.
Due to the Department of Home Affairs’ enhanced availability of the Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189), previously published point totals and work experience guides for the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) have been withdrawn.
