Victoria has expanded the eligibility for state nomination under digital sector.
The department has published a list of 12 occupations that would be considered for nomination under this category.
The list includes 12 occupations such as AgriTech, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, Digital Games, EduTech, Energy and resources tech, Fintech, GPS Imaging and geospatial, Health and Medtech, Robotics and automation, smart cities and infrastructure tech and Transport Tech.
The department says to be selected to apply for subclass 190 nomination in the digital sector; one must be working in one of the focus segments.
Migration expert Chaman Preet says this clarification has broadened the horizon for the applicants.
“The criteria announced earlier, was very specific and not many applicants were qualifying under the digital sector. The state has now specified segments which makes is much broader and easier for applicants to apply for ROIs,” said Chaman Preet, Melbourne-based Migration and Education Experts Director.
