Tasmania - 2021-22 Program quota update


Tasmania - 2021-22 Program quota update

Migration Tasmania has posted an update on remaining quota for the year 2021-22 and how they are planning to manage it as follows:  


Limited quota remaining  focus on priority cases first 


Tasmanias nomination quota for the 202122 program year is: 
Subclass 491  2200 places  1274 places used 
Subclass 190  1100 places  731 places used 
*updated 15 February 2022 


Managing remaining quota 


We have received around 1000 new applications since December. 

With less than 1300 places remaining and around 1300 applications for nomination yet to be finalised we are very likely to significantly exceed available quota. 


To manage this, and to ensure we continue to nominate those candidates who can best contribute to Tasmanian business skills needs, Migration Tasmania will focus on the following three priorities: 


  • Candidates with employment and a skills assessment related to critical roles (health, allied health, infrastructure, and engineering), and a skills assessment directly In line with that role 

  • Candidates with employment and skills assessment related to the Tasmanian Skilled Occupation List. 

  • Candidates with employment directly related to their nominated skills assessment (eg, skills assessment as a Chef, working as a chef) 


Remaining applications deemed suitable will be ranked competitively and considered for any remaining nomination places. 

Outcomes for applicants who are not in these three priority areas may not be available until later in the program year, which ends on June 30, 2022. 


Migration Tasmania is investigating with the Department of Home Affairs the possibility of additional quota. However, there is no guarantee this will be made available. 

We will constantly review this approach in coming months according to the number of applications received and the quota remaining.
