一．塔州 2020-21 总体配额
Subclass 491– 1400 个
Subclass 190 – 1000 个
Business migration – 45 个
二． 因所剩配额非常有限，但大量申请积压尚未审理， 3 月 31 日之后递交的 491 州担保申请，很大可能不会被审理。 20 号之前递交的申请将正常审理并给出结果； 3月20日至31日之间递交的申请，塔州将会尽最大努力还审理，但是要视届时的申请数量、配额数量以及申请人的综合条件而定。
三． 3 月31 日之后递交的申请，除非属于塔州州担保前三个（top 3 ）优先类别（Priorities categories ）之一，否则基本没有获得担保的可能性 。
五． 3 月19 日之后递交的州担保申请，如果在本财年末还未得到审理，将会被关闭，申请费会退还申请人 。
七． 塔州 190 和491 州担保都将于2021 年6 月11 日关闭，并将在7 月新财年重新开放
2020–2021 Program Update
The Tasmanian Nominated Skilled Migration Program now has only very limited subclass 491 nomination places remaining.
SKILLED MIGRATION PROGRAM
Tasmania’s nomination quota for the 2020–21 program year is:
Subclass 491 – 1400 places
Subclass 190 – 1000 places
Business migration – 45 places
Approximately 60% of total skilled visa (subclass 491 and 190) nomination places have been used.
Approximately 75% of subclass 491 places have been used.
Applications for subclass 491 nomination lodged after 31 March 2021 are unlikely to be considered.
Tasmania has fewer than 400 subclass 491 nomination places remaining for the 2020–2021 program year and a high number of nomination application not yet processed.
Migration Tasmania will consider and decide all applications for subclass 491 nomination lodged before 20 March 2021. All efforts will be made to consider all applications lodged between 20 March 2021 and 31 March 2021, depending upon the volume of applications received during that period.
Applications for subclass 491 nominations lodged after 31 March are highly unlikely to be successfully nominated unless they are in the top 3 priority categories (See Nomination Priorities below)
The highest priority applicants (Priority 1-3) will continue to be nominated until the end of the program year.
Visa expiry alone cannot be considered for prioritised assessment – applicants should investigate alternative visa options while await their application outcome.
Other subclass 491 nomination applications lodged before 31 March 2021 will be processed on an ongoing basis and if eligible will be ranked and nominated at a later date if there is sufficient quota available . Applications that do not meet eligibility or are sufficiently competitive will be declined.
Subclass 491 nomination applications lodged after 19 March 2021 that are not processed will be closed at the end of the program year and the service fee refunded.
Subclass 190 applications are not affected by this process and are being considered as normal.
Please note, applications for both subclass 491 and 190 nomination will close on 11 June 2021 at 5:00pm (AEST).
The program will then reopen in July 2021 subject to receipt of the new nomination quota from Department of Home Affairs.
***** INFORMATION WEBINAR *****
The next webinar will discuss this issue in more detail and will be held at 10am on 25 March 2021. Please refer to the Webinars news item
Here is the link to view the recorded webinar from Tuesday, 9 February 2021.
- Critical employment - health, allied health, technology, infrastructure, engineering, technology. Must have relevant skills assessment.
- TSOL related employment and skills assessment.
- Other skilled employment (ANZSCO 1-3) with related skills assessment/business owners employing locals.
- All other eligible candidates, depending upon likely contribution to economy.
What does this mean for applicants?
Applications will be considered according to these priorities, with those in critical roles being nominated first.
Existing applicants who are not in critical roles will be considered only after priority applications for critical roles have been processed.
In practice, applicants in Priorities 1-3 will be approved and nominated on an ongoing basis.
Periodically, other eligible applicants will be nominated if there are sufficient quota places are available.
Given the limited number of places remaining, Priority 4 applicants may not receive an outcome for some weeks after their application is considered.
