Changes to processing priority for subclass 132 and 188 applications- South Australia

Immigration SA’s Business Migration Program continues to be popular with applicants.

The number of applicants nominated in 2017/18 is well on the way to reaching the nomination quota allocated to the state by the Department of Home Affairs.  As such, Immigration SA is making the following changes to processing priority for subclass 132 and 188 state nomination applications:

•    Effective for applications submitted from 25 January 2018, priority processing will be given to those applicants that have previously visited South Australia (this visit can also occur after 25 January 2018).  Evidence of this will need to be provided in the State nomination application.

•    At this stage, this is a trial policy until 30 June 2018. If an applicant has not visited South Australia, the application will be processed after prioritised applications and subject to nomination availability.

•    Applications in the pipeline that were submitted by 1am Australian central standard time on 25 January 2018 or earlier are not affected by these changes.

•    Immigration SA reserves the right to offer a maximum of one nomination per client.  Re-nominations on previously approved state nomination applications will only be available in exceptional circumstances. Please ensure that you are ready to submit a visa application before seeking nomination from Immigration SA.
