New South Wales has opened its visa program for offshore candidates.
Offshore candidates skilled in occupations within some ANZSCO unit groups are now eligible for NSW nomination.
The state says to be eligible as an offshore applicant, one must have continuously resided offshore for the past three months.
Work experience requirement
According to the information released by the government, the applicants “now must have a minimum three years work experience in your nominated (or closely related) occupation for all occupations within some ANZSCO unit groups.”
“These unit groups are identified with a tick under the ‘Experience’ column on our NSW skilled occupation lists page.”
“These changes apply to all SkillSelect EOIs regardless of when they were submitted or amended and apply to both onshore and offshore EOIs,” it said
