NSW has a limit of 4,000 places available each year for State nominated Skilled Migration. In 2013-14 the 4,000 places were filled by December 2013 and no applications could be lodged for the first six months of 2014.
The application intake for 2014-15 has been staggered across the year to enable better management of the processing of applications. It will also enable monitoring of applications to manage occupational diversity. It is planned that another three intakes of 1,000 applications per intake will be scheduled in 2014-15. Details of the proposed intakes are published on the website. These dates may change once the July 2014 intake has been processed and reviewed.
