Subclass 190 Skilled — Nominated Visa


The criteria is basically the same as the Subclass 189 Skilled — Independent, except that the schedule 1 criteria states additionally:

The applicant must be nominated by a State or Territory government agency[21]

And this provision is found in the Schedule 2 criteria:

190.215           The nominating State or Territory government agency has not withdrawn the nomination.

The big difference of course is that the definition of skilled occupation for this visa is both Schedule 1, the Skilled Occupation List plus the much wider Schedule 2, the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List contained in Immi 13/66.  Each of the state or territories then choose which occupations and in what circumstances each will nominate a person having a skill assessment in a skilled occupation.
