Immigration SA has announced changes to
its General Skilled Migration nomination policies, to take effect
immediately today 28 February 2019.
These changes involve offering greater opportunity for nomination, that will particularly benefit graduates of South Australia’s educational institutions.
The changes include:
Rewarding international students that
have been long-term residents of South Australia
– Residing continuously in South Australia since at least March 2012
A broadening of the high performing
graduate category for South Australian graduates
– A grade point average 5.2 and above but below 6.0 (being the existing standard) will allow opportunity for a provisional visa pathway.
Removal of the minimum bachelor’s degree requirement under the Chain Migration category
Further information and details of the changes are available on the SA Immigration website
