With the approval of the Immigration Department, Tasmania has introduced a new visa category for overseas applicants who seeks migration solutions to Australia. This visa category will enable applicants to live and work in the Tasmania for up to four years and also offers a pathway to permanent residency in Australia.

From 1 July 2017, a new category for the Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 489) has been presented for Tasmanian state nomination for overseas applicants. They are eligible to apply for this category offshore.

A state nomination from Tasmania will add 10 points to a skilled visa applicant’s overall score required to qualify for a visa under Australia’s Immigration Department point test.

After having lived in the state for at least two years and worked full-time (35 hours per week) for at least one year during their stay, visa holders become eligible to apply for permanent residency in Australia.

To apply for this visa, an applicant is required to nominate an occupation from Tasmania’s Skilled Occupation List and provide appropriate proof of employment opportunities in the state. Applicants can also secure a genuine offer of employment from employers in the state.
