To help address South Australia’s urgent skills shortages, Skilled & Business Migration is increasing its nominations of offshore skilled migrants during 2022-23, with over 1,100 candidates already nominated. 


If you are an offshore skilled migrant seeking to move to South Australia, the first step is to use the Commonwealth Government’s SkillSelect system to make an expression of interest (EOI), and select South Australia as your preferred State or Territory to move to in Australia. 

Once you have submitted your SkillSelect EOI, the South Australian Government can view your application and may invite you to apply for state nomination for a Skilled Nominated (Permanent) visa (subclass 190)  or Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 491) in priority occupations including Medical Specialists, Health and Science professionals, Nurses, Teachers, Defence, Technicians and Trades workers.   

South Australia is nominating offshore applicants from over 470 occupations, so please ensure all the information in your SkillSelect EOI is kept up to date, your supporting documents are valid, and you have selected South Australia as your preferred State or Territory to move to in Australia.   

For South Australian state nomination, you must also meet the Department of Home Affairs visa requirements, state-specific occupation requirements and have skills in an occupation that is available on our Skilled Occupation List

For further information on South Australia’s nomination requirements, please refer to the offshore stream and Frequently Asked Questions sections of our website.
