For overseas applicants: SA opens General Skilled Migration Permanent Resident Programme


Great news! An additional 24 Engineering occupations will be open to applicants currently residing offshore from Tuesday 2 November 2021 to manage South Australia’s COVID recovery response.


State nomination minimum requirements for these occupations include:

  • You must have at least eight years of work experience in the nominated or closely related occupation

  • You must demonstrate a Superior English level unless you hold an eligible passport from a country where the primary language is English (the United Kingdom, the United States of America, New Zealand, Ireland and Canada)

  • You must score at least 85 points for the Skilled Work Regional visa (subclass 491) in the Department of Home Affairs' points test.


For South Australian state nomination, prospective applicants must qualify with the Department of Home Affairs requirements, state-specific occupation requirements and have skills in an occupation that is available on the Skilled Occupation List. Offshore applicants meeting the minimum published requirements may lodge a Registration of Interest (RoI) from 10 am, ACST, Tuesday 2 November 2021.


State nomination is a competitive process. Therefore, there is no guarantee of receiving an invitation to apply for state nomination after lodging a Registration of Interest (RoI), even if the minimum requirements are satisfied. South Australia cannot indicate the likelihood of invitation or answer enquiries on this matter.
