Migration updates 2014/15 program year

State nomination process made simple

Immigration South Australia is using data from SkillSelect to identify eligible applicants and inviting them to apply for state nomination. Find out more about the application process here.

The number of available state nomination places (planning levels) are now calculated at the time of submission rather than time of decision, meaning your application will no longer be refused based on planning levels.

We've also made the application process easier for you by updating our online application system.

South Australian State Occupation List

The new occupation lists for the 2014/15 program year are available on our website.  Below are some of the new occupations added to the State Occupation List:

  • Advertising Manager
  • Regional Education Manager

IELTS requirements (for most occupations) have been reduced to six in each band score to align with DIBP requirements. All score requirements are published on the State Occupation List.

We're recognising applicants' commitment to South Australia

Applicants who have worked in South Australia for the last 12 months in a skilled occupation* have access to a more extensive occupation list. View point 5 and 6 in the eligibility requirements section.
