Great news for skilled migrants!

Western Australia announced changes for 2022-2023 migration program


First, the state will begin accepting applications from overseas candidates for state nomination. Invitations to apply for WA State nomination will be via the ranking system, giving priorities to:

  1. Applicants currently residing in Western Australia
  2. Applicants residing in Australia
  3. Applicants from overseas


Secondly, the updated criteria for inviting candidates from the State of Western Australia for the new financial year 2022-2023 are now available.

Candidates may be nominated by the states under two streams: general or graduate stream.
