Skilled Nominated Permanent visa (Subclass 190)
The Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) is yet another visa available under the General Skilled migration pathway. It is a permanent residence visa for points-tested skilled workers who want to work and live in Australia after being nominated by an Australian state or territory government agency.
This visa too is similar to subclass 189 visa in many aspects except the eligibility for this visa lies on the applicant being nominated by a state. State nomination will provide the applicant with 5 extra points to the points score enabling the suitable candidates to reach the pass mark. To be able to apply for this visa you need to submit an expression of interest and then be invited through SkillSelect. You can be in or outside Australia when you apply and when the visa is granted. The maximum age considered for this visa is 45 years.
