Occupations on the NSW State Migration Plan that are impacted by this policy change include:
- Other Engineering Professional - 2339
- Software and Applications Programmers - 2613
Applications received before suspension
NSW is committed to processing all applications in these occupational groups that were received before the suspension. NSW current assessment timeframe is up to 12 weeks. Applicants will receive an outcome on their application within this timeframe.
New applications in these occupational groups
Due to the large number of applications that NSW had already received in these occupations at the time that pro-rata change was announced, NSW is currently unable to accept new State Nomination (subclass 190) applications under these occupational groups.
New applications in these occupational groups will be declined.
At this stage, NSW is unable to advise when new applications under these occupational groups will be accepted however, any update will be posted on this website.
