Opening of NSW’S Skilled Migration Program
NSW has now opened its Skilled Migration Program for 2021-21. NSW has announced that they will be selecting candidates who are currently living and working in NSW in 99 different target ANZSCO unit groups for the 190 program and 160 different occupations on the 491 Combined Occupation List. Further details of these occupations can be found at NSW Skilled Occupation Lists | NSW Government.
This offers a potential pathway for applicants not otherwise eligible for permanent residence under employer sponsored or independent skilled programs. However, it is a highly competitive process and applicants should seek advice on their specific situation.
