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.
