Canberra has opened its skill migration program after a break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has also updated its skilled occupation list for state nomination aligned with a new-normal scenario. Now, Australian states and territories are focused on applicants critical to support the COVID-19 response, and Canberra has aligned its nomination criteria for 2020/21. Canberra’s new update on its skilled migration program would be not so exciting for many international students eyeing for ACT nomination.

Canberra would invite individuals providing critical or specialist medical services in Canberra as well as who can fulfill critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services, as well as who can deliver services in the critical sector to help ACT’s economic recovery.
