You too can register your interest in applying for a nomination for ACT (Australian Capital Territory). To do this, you must complete a ‘Canberra Matrix’ which has a score-based system.

In it, claims to the points can be made to refer to specific criteria. These include English proficiency, skilled employment, formal qualifications, English proficiency, length of ACT residence/study, close family ties, and investment activity among other factors.

What’s Canberra Matrix?

Those who are interested to move to ACT can choose to join many promising job opportunities for skilled foreigners in the Australian territory. To migrate to ACT, you must score the required points on a Canberra Matrix.

The Canberra Matrix system assigns points for many factors that are determined and weighed. This will ensure that the chosen applicants get more chances to be ranked and invited to apply for an ACT nomination. These candidates will make/have made a positive contribution to the Australian territory’s economy and/or have shown a commitment to the ACT which is genuine.

It’s a must to complete the Canberra Matrix for both the ACT 190 nomination and the ACT 491 nomination.
