2023/24 – 190 State Nominations

190 visa

190 nomination allocations refer to the number of new applications for 190 visas that the States and Territories can nominate in a financial year. The new applications are added to the existing on-hand caseload in these visa categories. The below nomination allocations are not the total sum of visa applications for 190 visas and do not place a limit on the number of 190 visas that can be granted.


The Department of Home Affairs recently announced the nomination allocations for 190 visas in this financial year of 2023/24.

Which States for 190 Visas?

In order to answer this question, we need to make assumptions as follows:

  • Assumption 1: The level of interest among foreign individuals in 190 visas is directly correlated with the general population of the respective States and Territories. In simpler terms, States with larger populations tend to have a higher number of competitors vying for 190 visas.
  • Assumption 2: Other specific criteria, such as residency in the respective States and Territories, are disregarded.

We assess the allocation of nomination slots in relation to the population of the respective states. This rate serves as the decisive factor in determining the winners within the framework of the current nomination allocations for the financial year 2023/24.
