Commitment to South Australia 部分，对在外州工作学习过的申请人进行了更严格的限制：
1. Commitment to South Australia
1.3 The following commitment to state restrictions apply.
1.3.1 If you are in Australia but not residing in South Australia, you are ineligible to apply for South Australian state nomination. This restriction overrides any other pathways to apply.
1.3.2 If you have studied or worked in another Australian state or territory (i.e. on a temporary visa) and not in South Australia in the last 10 years, you are only eligible to apply for a provisional 489 visa.
1.3.3 If you have studied or worked in another Australian state or territory as well as in South Australia in the last 10 years, you will generally only be eligible to apply for a 489 provisional visa (and not a 190 permanent visa) unless it is clear that your commitment is more clearly aligned to South Australia than to any other Australian state or territory.
- Factors that will be taken into account will include the time spent in South Australia, the most recent Australian location you spent time in, and what you were doing in these locations (i.e. study, work). For those residing in South Australia, meeting the “* Currently Working in South Australia ” category would generally be sufficient for achieving a 190 visa nomination where this is available for your occupation.
Note: If 1.3.3 applies to you, select the “489” visa on your state nomination application. If you wish to be considered for a 190 nomination, still select the “489” visa in your application and attach a separate supporting statement outlining your 190 visa request and demonstrated commitment to South Australia. On your Expression of Interest (EOI), you should select both “489” and “190”.
