South Australia is open for skilled migration 2023-2024

South Australia’s Skilled Migration Program is open now. We have received detailed information from the state migration office and we are happy to share it with you, guys!

Currently, potential candidates cannot apply for a state nomination directly; you should register your ROI first and then get an invitation for a state nomination. You will not be able to edit an ROI, but you can revoke an old interest registration and submit a new one. Submission ROI is free, but the nomination fee is AUD 359.

Obviously, all applicants should find their occupation in the state list. You can check it out on official website of the South Australia Migration.

The SOL of South Australia includes about 160 occupations in agriculture, management and business, information technology and art, sports and hospitality, education, engineering and, of course, medicine. Please note that each occupation in the list has special requirements depending on the nomination type – minimum point score, eligible visa, and qualification.

The state's priority applicants will be South Australian university graduates and temporary visa holders. Applications are also accepted from offshore specialists.

The invitation rounds are expected throughout the year with no specific days announced. If the candidate does not accept the invitation, they may be invited again at the end of the program year.
