New offshore GSM nomination criteria
Changes have been made to the nomination qualifying standards for overseas General Skilled Migration applicants. This consists of:
reduced required work experience (one year down from 3 years for most occupations)
Additional occupations have been added to the Priority Occupations Stream expansion of the Family Support Stream to allow regional provisional (subclass 489, 491 and 494) visa holders and those who hold bridging visas after applying for regional permanent residency (subclass 887 and 191) visas to support family members applying for nomination.
