Before applying for nomination, you need to express your interest in the Migration Tasmania. Registrations will be valid for six months, and only the competitive applicants will receive an invitation to proceed with the nomination application. Registering your interest does not require any payment.
Tasmania Pass Criteria
Gold Pass: You can immediately lodge an application for nomination.
Green Pass: You are likely to be invited to apply for nomination within 6-8 weeks.
Orange Pass: You are likely to be invited to apply for nomination within 6 months, depending on the volume of interest and your priority attributes.
* If you’re not invited within 6 months, your registration will expire, and you’ll need to complete a new registration.
Red Pass: You do not meet the minimum nomination requirements and cannot apply.
Applications for Tasmanian nomination incur a non-refundable service fee of $300 (plus $30 GST – if in Australia) to apply for nomination. During the online application process the fee will be requested and after the fee is processed you will be able to ‘SUBMIT’ the nomination application. If payment is not made or is unsuccessful, the application will be saved as ‘In Progress’ on the system for two weeks until the payment is finalised and the application lodged. After two weeks if an application has not been lodged it will lapse and close.
Unsuccessful applicants for the Subclass 190 visa may be considered for the Subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa nomination. To be considered, you must include Subclass 491 as an option on your SkillSelect Expression of Interest (EOI). Failure to include both options will result in no support for visa nomination. Multiple nominations are not allowed, and if you are granted a Subclass 491 visa, you cannot reapply for a Subclass 190 in the future.
