Many migrants come to Australia each year with a hope to settle down. This often gets perturbed by the non-matching professions of the occupation list. Thus some of the migrants feel the pinch of not being in an occupation as required by SOL. However, for such people, Tasmania is a safe haven which provides alternate ways to get settled in Australia.
Tasmania is a great place to settle in Australia with respect to development as well as the living standards there. In order to get settled in Tasmania, a migrant can apply for the following visas:
- Skilled Independent Subclass 189
There is no sponsorship required in this. However, the applicant needs to have the occupation mentioned in Skilled Occupations List.
- Skilled Nominated Subclass 190
The visa requires nomination for a State or Territory Government. The applicant must have an occupation on the Migration Instrument 2017 (IMMI 17/072: Specification of Occupations and Assessing Authorities).
- Skilled Regional (Provisional) Subclass 489
The visa requires sponsorship by a relative living in a designated area or a state or territory government.
Other than these requirements, the applicant must also both the Department of Immigration and Border Protection requirements and the Tasmanian Government state nomination requirements for being eligible for state sponsored visas. This will also include matching a skills assessment against specified occupations, recognised level of English language, and a minimum score on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s ‘Points Test’.
A candidate can check his or her eligibility by using a calculator designed by Tasmania government.
