    Applying for an ACT Government Nomination - 190

    The application process for 886 nominations has not changed. However, new online applications are available now for Skilled -Nominated 190 and RSMS.

    If your current nominated occupation is in demand in ACT you would normally need to go through SkillSelect EOI first.

    Applicants would need to demonstrate an evidence of current skill assessment by the relevant assessing body. All VETASSESS skill assessments must be dated after January 2010.

    Unless you are United Kingdom; Canada; New Zealand; United States of America; Republic of Ireland passport holder, you would need to demonstrate current IELTS result with a minimum score 7 in speaking and 7 overall. You would also be eligible if you hold a current OET result with a minimum grade B in all sections.

    If the occupation is verified as `limited' or `off list': an IELTS result with a minimum score of 7 in each band is required.

    The length of work experience is not mandated. However, ACT government must be satisfied that you have sufficient experience in your nominated occupation to be employable in Canberra.

    New applications should be easy to submit and to attach the appropriate documentation.
