Update on NSW Sponsorship Options before July 2013

In our article last week we talked about NSW subclass 190 sponsorship being closed.

Many of our readers were concerned about this announcement, and we want to clarify a few matters and let you know about some other possibilities:

1. You can still apply for 489 NSW regional sponsorship. Accountants as an example can obtain a state nomination through the Sothern Inland region of NSW and you could also get 10 points rather then 5 points for your regional state sponsorship.

2. The Skilled Independent subclass 189 is still available for applicants with a score of 60 and does not require state nomination.

3. NSW state sponsorship is not closed permanently and will reopen on 1 July 2013. Do not wait until 1 of July to start your application process as you can get prepared and be rather proactive about it.

4. Employer sponsored visas can also be a good option for many applicants.
