WA State Nomination Program


WA State Nomination Program

Invitations to apply for the State Nominated Migration Program will resume in January 2021. The Western Australian State nomination criteria have been revised in line with State health and economic recovery priorities. The changes to the criteria are as follows. 

  • Intending applicants must be currently residing in Australia to be invited and nominated.
  • Intending applications subject to a section 48 bar, are not eligible for State nomination.
  • If you are applying through the Graduate stream and due to COVID-19 you completed some of your Western Australian studies online (either onshore or offshore), you are now able to use this study toward the Western Australian study requirement.

 Visit the occupation lists page for available occupations on the Graduate Occupation List and the Western Australian Skilled Migration Occupation list

For more information see the updated Western Australian State nomination criteria or visit the General stream requirements or Graduate stream requirements page.
