Tasmania Expected To Re-Open In Late January 2021 For SC491 & SC190 Visas (December 22, 2020)


Tasmania has now received its full nomination quota for the 2020 21 program year. The full allocation is made up of:

Subclass 491 – 1400 places
Subclass 190 – 1000 places
Business migration  45 places

Approximately 25% of skilled visa nomination places have been used.

Migration Tasmania is currently adjusting selection requirements and policies to reflect the expectations and priorities set out by the Department of Home Affairs, with the expectation of opening to general applications in late January 2021. Until this time, the interim program arrangements below will continue to operate.

Visa holders who do not meet the interim requirements but who believe they have exceptional circumstances warranting consideration of nomination should contact Migration Tasmania at skilled@migration.tas.gov.au before lodging an application. Imminent visa expiry on its own is not a sufficient reason to prioritize a case.
