The Business Migration team from the Victorian State Government has today announced that they will be accepting applications for nomination for the Business Innovation & Investment (subclass 188) – Significant Investor Stream (188C).
From 9AM AEST on Monday 30 November, the Victorian Government will open to receive new applications for Significant Investor (subclass 188C) visa (SIV) nominations.
The re-opening is possible due to a limited number of visa places remaining from the Commonwealth Government’s interim allocation in August 2020
New State Nomination Visa Places Pending
The Victorian Government is awaiting further advice from the Department of Home Affairs on the allocations for skilled, business and investor state nominations for the remainder of the 2020-21 program year.
We will provide an update as more information becomes available. Please continue to check our website news for updates.
In the meantime, all other business innovation and investor visa nomination applications (subclass 188A, 188B, and 188E streams and subclass 132A and 132B streams) and the skilled program (subclass 190 and subclass 491) remain closed to new applications.
The Victorian government has advised that they will continue to select high calibre skilled migrants for nomination from the pool of Registration of Interest submissions.
