From 14 May until 15 June 2014, people who hold a South Australian state nominated provisional visa (subclass 489, 475, 487 and 495 only), who are living and working in the state can apply for a 190 – Skilled Nominated Permanent visa through Immigration South Australia.
This trial program enables people who have already secured a provisional state nominated visa to apply for a permanent visa through the same program.
Before you apply
You should make sure you are aware of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection cost associated with the 190 – Skilled Nominated visa. For a single applicant the minimum application cost is $3520 compared to the $370 for the 887 – Skilled Regional visa.
