Good news for business visa candidates of SA

I am happy to let you know – for new 2021-22 program year, South Australia has removed two steps from the application process used in the previous 2020-21 program year:

  • the removal of the exploratory visit to South Australia 
  • the removal of the requirement to submit an ‘Intention To Apply’ (ITA) form for the 2021-22 program year.


SA will be assessing state nomination applications for subclass 188 visa products in four quarterly periods during the 2021-22 program year in these indicative dates:

  • Round 1 Assessments: 2 August 2021 – 24 September 2021
  • Round 2 Assessments: 25 October 2021 – 17 December 2021
  • Round 3 Assessments: 31 January 2022 – 25 March 2022
  • Round 4 Assessments: 2 May 2022 – 24 June 2022


Application assessment timelines may be impacted by the volumes received and will be updated accordingly throughout the program year as each assessment round is completed.

Applications for state nomination for the subclass 188 Business Innovation, Investor & Significant Investor streams will open on Tuesday 20th July 2021. Application access for the subclass 188 Entrepreneur stream will follow in August and a further announcement regarding this will be provided in due course.

All information on the 2021-22 program year nomination requirements and application process will be available on our website by Tuesday 20 July 2021.
