Migration Updates, Employer Sponsored Visa, Free Event

State wise visa allocation for 2023-24 is in place now. The allocations for subclass 190 and subclass 491 is approximately one third of that of the ones in previous year. This is a  drastic drop down, this is possibly due to the applications on hand with department to clear out the backlogs. However, alike last year, the department might revise and increase allocations. 
But, we would recommend to apply for visa as soon as possible as the priority could be given to the ones who applied early and which will possibly mean grants faster.

Few states already are open and accepting applications from different states as well as from overseas.

Victoria State and Regional Sponsor

Victoria received it's allocation for 2023-24 FY with submission window expected to open soon. Alike other states, Victoria also has  received reduced allocation number compared to that of previous year. However, good news is, Victoria received the highest allocation for subclass 190 compared to all other states with 2700 allocations, followed by Sydney with 2650 and a distant third Western Australia with 1500.If you have lodged ROI before, you have to relodge and meet the eligibility criteria along with updated documents.
