The Migration Queensland skilled visa program (subclass 190 and 491 visas) is now closed due to the nomination allocation for the 2021–22 program year being filled.
The applicants who received invitations will have their applications continue to be processed by Migration Queensland.
However, Migration Queensland says it is important that the applicants submit the required documents and pay the application fee within the required 14-day period, “otherwise your application will be closed.”
“If you have not received an invitation, you will need to submit a new EOI when the 2022–23 Skilled Program opens next financial year,” it said.
491-Small Business Owners applicants who have submitted their Expression Of Interest (EOI) and 491-Small Business Owners Assessment Forms online by Friday 6 May 2022 will still receive an invitation.
“Given the large demand for this pathway, the processing time may be up to 8–12 weeks,” Migration Queensland has said.
“For those who have not submitted an EOI and 491-Small Business Owners Assessment Form for the 491-SBO by Friday 6 May 2022, you will need to submit a new EOI and form when the 2022–23 Skilled Program opens next financial year,” it added.
The Migration Queensland business program remains open for nominations in 2021–22.
