If you are interested to work and live in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) of Canberra, you will have to qualify in the scoring system used by ACT. As one of the most happening cities of Australia, many migrants come to the country through immigration Australia’s work or resident visa.

Canberra is a big favorite of these migrants as it offers amazing opportunities for a great life in terms of:

  • High-quality education
  • Amazing employment
  • Affordable housing
  • Multicultural environment

Foreign skilled workers arrive in Canberra, like any other state or city in Australia, through nominations. These workers would be eligible to apply for Permanent Residence. The nomination requests are sent to the federal immigration authority. This body is the Department of Home Affairs (DHA). Any of the 2 categories of visas is dealt with here namely the Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 or the Skilled Work Regional (Provincial) Subclass 491.

The most recent Canberra Matrix round took place on April 21, 2020. 171 applicants were invited in the round to apply for state sponsorship. They came under the ACT 190 nomination class. All Matrix submitted had 95 to 70 points.

There were no invitations issued In the ACT 491 Nomination. This was because of the presence of sufficient Subclass 491 applications in the queue. These applications are slated to be taken up in the May 2020 monthly allocation of Subclass 491 nomination places.
