Those overseas who are interested to live and work in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) of Canberra, will need to qualify in the scoring system of ACT. Canberra is one of the most happening cities. Immigration Australia sees a lot of migrants coming to this city with work or resident visa.
Canberra is largely favored by the migrants because it offers lots of opportunities for leading a great life due to:
- High-quality education
- Amazing employment
- Affordable housing
- Multicultural environment
Many skilled workers from abroad arrive in Canberra through nominations. This is similar to what happens in any other state or city in Australia. They would be eligible to apply for Permanent Residence. The nomination requests are sent to the federal immigration authority, I.e. the Department of Home Affairs (DHA). There are 2 categories of visas dealt with here. They are:
- the Skilled Nominated Subclass 190, or
- the Skilled Work Regional (Provincial) Subclass 491.
The most recent Canberra Matrix was conducted on April 21, 2020. 171 applicants who came under the ACT 190 nomination class were invited in the round to apply for state sponsorship. All Matrix submitted had 95 to 70 points.
No invitations were issued In the ACT 491 Nomination category due to the presence of sufficient applications in the queue. These applications are going to be considered in the May 2020 monthly allocation of Subclass 491 nomination places.
Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 visa allows workers to live and work in Australia with permanent residence. Any place in Australia is allowed for them to study and work from. They can also sponsor relatives eligible for Australian permanent residence. The visa holder may even become an Australian citizen in time if eligible.
The Skilled Work Regional (Provincial) Subclass 491 visa is a provisional visa. It goes to skilled workers with plans to live and work in regional Australia. Holding this visa, they can stay for 5 years in Australia. They can work, live, and study in a designated regional area in Australia. They can also travel to and from the country as many times they wish, provided the visa must be valid at the time of travel.
The influx of skilled workers into Australia is thus kept happening with immigration programs like Canberra Matrix. These newcomers to Australia will contribute to their economy in a highly desirable manner too.
