NSW 190 Skilled Visa Nomination Program 2021-2022
NSW Nomination Process
NSW nomination for the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) is highly competitive, and uses a selection-based invitation process to ensure that NSW nominees are aligned to the skills needs of the state's economy.
You cannot directly apply, an Expression of Interest must be submitted at the start (which is not a visa application and is why you will not receive a bridging visa from this submission).
