Highlights: NSW drops minimum points and work experience requirements for Subclass 190

  • New South Wales (NSW) has changed visa conditions for the Skilled Nominated (Subclass 190) visa.
  • There will be no requirement for work experience and minimum points to apply for Subclass 190.
  • The increased availability of Subclass 189 visas has led to this step by NSW.

If you are interested in Australia immigration to New South Wales, here’s some exciting news for you! NSW has taken away the requirement for work experience and minimum points for applicants for Subclass 190 visa.

The following is the official statement on the new measure taken by NSW:

"Previously published points scores and work experience guides for the Skilled Nominated visa (Subclass 190) have been removed due to increased availability of the Skilled Independent visa (Subclass 189) by the Department of Home Affairs."

What led to this move?

The fact is that NSW needs skilled foreign workers who are capable of helping meet the requirements of the state’s labor market. Their work will be instrumental in making the state’s economy better and flourishing in time.

The nomination for the Skilled Nominated (Subclass 190) visa is competitive. Here’s another statement from the NSW state government that clarifies how Subclass 190 visa applicants will be selected for nomination:

"We generally consider such things as points score, English proficiency, and years of skilled experience during invitation rounds. Being invited to apply for NSW nomination is at the sole discretion of the NSW Government,"
