The new immigration rules of South Australia are now effective from July 2019. These new changes may concern the applicants of State Sponsorship from South Australia through Subclasses 489 and 190 Visas.
South Australia has announced a revised and expanded State Nominated Occupation List for 2019-20 and also published the new Skilled Occupations List along with a Supplementary List. Eligible candidates with experience in 275 occupations including those related to trade, STEM, social welfare, ICT, health and more can apply for South Australia immigration.
Under the General Skilled Migration (GSM), immigration to South Australia for 469 occupations through the High Points pathway will require at least 80 points. It is inclusive of points for state nomination.
The immigrant application for ICT occupations will require at least 75 points. It is inclusive of skills assessment by the Australian Computer Society (ACS) as well as state nomination.
For applicants currently working in South Australia and overseas graduates of South Australia, a minimum of 65 points for occupations under ICT is required.
The immigration policy recognises the contributions of former and existing students to South Australia. A minor change in this regard has been implemented. Now overseas students who have stayed in South Australia for a continuous 7 years in the past can apply for immigration.
Under the Provisional Subclass 489 Visa, the state nominations are given to long-term residing or current overseas student in South Australia, applicants who are currently staying in the state and have continuously stayed there for the past 7 years and also, applicants with minimum 3 months of work experience in any occupation in South Australia.
