Only 10 days after releasing new state sponsorship list, the ACT Government has advised that the Skilled Nomination Subclass 190 program has been closed to overseas applicants until 2017. The closure is effective immediately. Applicants living overseas cannot commence an application for ACT nomination until the program reopens next year.
Applications that have been lodged and paid for will continue to be processed. The application must be complete with all supporting documents attached. Additional documentation will not be accepted after lodgement.
This closure does not affect Canberra based applicants who are still able to lodge applications if they meet the current required criteria.
