Skilled stream visas 2023-24: State and Territory Nomination Allocations

Finally, the Department has released the allocation for Australian states and territories nominations for candidates applying for visas 190, 491 and 188.

This year, the Department declares the number of nominations to be significantly lower than Migration Program planning levels, explaining that…

“Nomination allocations are the number of new primary applicants each state or territory can nominate in a program year. New applications are added to the existing on-hand caseload in these visa categories.

Nomination allocations do not reflect the total number of visa applicants in these categories and do not limit the number of visas able to be granted in these visa categories.

The Department processes existing on-hand applications and new applications nominated by a state or territory in line with the permanent Migration Program planning levels and skilled visa processing priorities.”

​No new allocations have been given for the BIIP. The Department has enough applications on-hand to meet the 2023–​24 planning level for the BIIP.​

Friends, to be honest, there are currently more questions than answers to the Department, so we are awaiting official detailed clarifications. I am confident that for now, it’s too early for panic.

We instantly are sharing with you this information and will update you as soon as we get more information. Stay tuned!
