General Skilled Migration (GSM) state nomination
Immigration has published a revised State Nominated Occupation List (SNOL) and the application system is now available. Immigration SA has already announced some upcoming changes to state nomination requirements.
High points category
In addition, Immigration SA’s requirement for the high points category has been temporarily reduced from 85 to 80 points from 4 July 2016.
Please note that quotas apply to nominations in the high points category, both overall and for each occupation. Once the quota is reached, applications may be closed for certain occupations and the overall point requirement will increase to 85 points.
