Canberra’s new state nomination management system Canberra Matrix calculates closer tie and potentiality of candidates for state growth. English skill, living and working in Canberra as well as graduated from any ACT institutions along other dozens of factors determine candidate’s point score on Canberra Matrix. And, higher scorer would get invitations for state nomination on competition base. Once a candidate submits Canberra Matrix, it frizzes the application and based on the point claimed issues invitations. Matrix submitted has six months life in ACT government’s nomination management system. Once you submitted your Canberra Matrix and not get any invitation for six months, it will expire automatically, and you need to submit another.
If you get invited based on your points claimed on Canberra Matrix either for 190 or 491 subclass visa nomination you have to provide all the documentation to prove your eligibility claimed at the date of matrix submission. Failing to provide documentation regarding the points claimed your invitation would be invalid and no nomination would granted.
