The Skilled Nominated (Subclass 190) visa is a permanent visa that allows skilled workers to live in Australia, based on an invitation from an Australian state or territory.
To apply for a Skilled Nominated (Subclass 190) visa, you must first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) and be invited by an Australian state or territory.
Once invited to apply for this visa, the application must be submitted within 60 days, otherwise the invitation lapses. Consequently, it is very important to have all the necessary documentation ready at the time of the invitation.
This is a permanent visa that allows you to stay in Australia indefinitely.
You become a permanent resident from the day the visa is granted.
Permanent residency for citizenship purposes begins the day you are granted the visa if you are in Australia.
