Tasmania State Nomination update – March 2020

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Tasmanian government has following  update for 491 State Nomination applications for overseas applicants:

The rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 has necessitated temporary changes to eligibility for the Subclass 491: 3A Overseas Applicant (TSOL) nomination category.

As of 20 March 2020, applications for this category are temporarily restricted until further notice to occupations listed in the ‘High Demand’ section of the Tasmanian Skilled Occupation List (TSOL). Please do not LODGE or PAY for a Category 3A application if your nominated occupation is not listed as ‘HIGH DEMAND’ on the TSOL. Your application will NOT be assessed.

Applications under Category 3A lodged prior to this date which specify other occupations will still be considered. Applicants with ‘High Demand’ occupations will, however, be given priority. This means processing times for other Category 3A applications with occupations not listed in the High Demand section will become extended (approximately 6 months from lodgement).

The updated Tasmanian Skilled Occupation List (TSOL) can be found here.

I am a Registered Migration Agent (RMA) in Australia and I advise and assist clients who are looking to call Australia their home to live, work, study or do business. I have been doing so since 2006. I also assist international students with their admissions to Australian universities and colleges, and counsel them to achieve career goals. I read at least 10 books a year, enjoy landscape photography, love watching movies and listening to music. Sometimes, I binge watch Netflix (and other streaming services). These days, I'm listening to South Asian rock bands (mostly from Pakistan) and I'm loving it. MARN 0634839
