State Nomination Australian Migration

State Nomination Australian Migration:

If you want to  apply for subclass 190 visa (sponsored permanent residency visa) or 489 visa (which is a sponsored temporary visa with a pathway to PR, if you meet certain requirements) in the skilled migration program, you will need to get nomination from a state.

For state sponsored visa, you will need to get a state sponsorship. Each state will sponsor different occupations at different times based on their requirements. Each state will also have their own specific requirements. Generally, getting a state sponsorship is not guaranteed.

Please go through the following links and find out which state is sponsoring the occupations in the CSOL:

“His response and way of working towards queries resolutions was outstanding.”

“We want to give thanks to Dr. Annathurai for his right guidance and great professional advice towards our successful PR VISA.

Dr. Annathurai is very proactive and thoughtful. As the Visa process is extremely stressful and documentation heavy, Dr. Annathurai gave the pre-requisite VISA checklist to us well in advance before each stage so that we can be ready with entire documentation without any delay.

We, the family got the Australia PR within decent timeframe of 7 months including all the three stages of VISA i.e. Skill Assessment, Expression of Interest and final VISA application. We had queries at all the stages and contacted Anna for providing guidance. His response and way of working towards queries resolutions was outstanding. Under the guidance of Mr. Annathurai, we prepared strong documentation and due to this reason only, we did not receive a single query by the Australian Immigration officer for VISA. On the day when the Case officer was assigned for our case, VISA was granted.

He is a registered MARA consultant for Australia and equipped with the knowledge / expertise of all sort of legal and immigration cases.

It also amazed us that he was handling all the VISA related processing from people all over the world with help of Whatsapp, emails and phone calls. When we were thinking about the PR, we needed to choose the right consultant for the same. We had contacted various immigrations agents, spent multiple days and finally decided to take consultation from Dr. Annathurai, Director ‘VISA HELP AUSTRALIA’ for our PR.  Again thanks Anna for making our dream successful.

I definitely want to recommend Dr. Annathurai for his VISA immigration services to aspiring candidates and started doing the same.”
