Queensland state migration programme announced in Australia

Applications for Queensland Government state sponsorship are now open under the Queensland State Migration Plan (SMP).

The SMP is the result of a formal agreement between the Queensland Government and the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC).

The Queensland Government provides a limited number of nominations to those skilled migrants who have an eligible skill and who are assessed as likely to provide a clear benefit to the Queensland economy. DIAC eligibility is also a condition of Queensland nomination for sponsored visas.

Please be advised that applying for nomination correctly does not guarantee success. Nomination is granted at the discretion of the Queensland Government and once a decision has been made it is final, and the Queensland Government does not endorse any appeals to DIAC or the Migration Review Tribunal.

The eligible skills lists are reviewed regularly and updated to reflect current labour market conditions. Some occupations have limited places, and when these places have been filled, they will be removed from this list.

Skilled Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176) Eligible Skills List

Each occupation on the eligible skills list for this visa has its own:

  • English language requirements
  • qualifications and registration
  • industry experience

To apply for nomination, applicants must meet all requirements for their nominated occupation.

Applicants for subclasses 475, 487 and 176 must:

  • have an occupation on the relevant Queensland eligible skills list for that visa category
  • meet the requirements for the nominated occupation as listed on the relevant eligible skills list for that visa category
  • have a positive skills assessment for that occupation from the relevant organisation
  • meet other nomination requirements detailed on the application form
  • be assessed by Skilled and Business Migration as being likely to provide a clear benefit to the Queensland economy.

To apply for nomination, applicants must meet all requirements for their nominated occupation.
