2021–22 Program Update

2021–22 Program Update – New Applications Temporarily Restricted

The Tasmanian Skilled Migration State Nomination Program now has only very limited nomination places remaining, and enough on hand applications to expend our full quota by the end of June 2022.

As a result, new applications are temporarily restricted to invited candidates only.

Applications ‘In Progress’ at 5:00pm (AEST) 15 April 2022 will be able to be lodged until 14 days after commencement (as advised during the online application process).

New applications created and then lodged after 5:00pm (AEST) 15 April 2022 will only be eligible for consideration if the applicant has been invited to apply by Migration Tasmania. Applications lodged without an invitation will be declined.

Applications lodged before 5:00pm (AEST) 15 April 2022 will be processed as normal until all nomination places are used. Any remaining successful applications will be nominated against places allocated to Tasmania in the 2022-23 program year. Applications that are not processed before 30 June 2022 will be processed in the next program year.

The 2022 – 23 Tasmanian Skilled Migration State Nomination Program will open for new applications after full details of quota allocations and any conditions are confirmed by the Australian Government.
