This is for those who were planning to ask the ACT Canberra for their nomination/sponsorship for a skilled visa:

Effective immediately (13 September 2016 at 4pm AEST) applications for ACT nomination will not be accepted from overseas residents.

If you are living overseas you will not be able to commence an application for ACT nomination of a Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa until the program reopens in 2017.

If you have an application for ACT nomination currently ‘in progress’, the application must be submitted, and payment made, before midnight tonight, 13 September 2016 (AEST). You must submit a complete application e.g. all supporting documents attached, as additional documentation will not be accepted after lodgement.

Just to clarify further, applications "in progress" but not completed before 13 September 2016 will not be accepted. Please see the revised announcement as below:

Hi guys,,

Any idea when will they reopen in 2017?
I thought it will reopen in July 2017, as ACT official website mentioned:

"If you are living overseas you will not be able to commence an application for ACT nomination of a Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa until the program reopens in July 2017. "

Please clarify.

It should not be 3 months after all your documentation uploaded?

Hi ,

I plan to apply EOI for ACT my breadown as 65 points with SS , Im graphic designer will i get invite . please clarify me.

Thanks.
Wow, i never realised i could find someone with exactly the same points as me, exactly the same profession and the same intended state. I hope to get an invite once i apply by July 2017 but my main concern is how to provide evidence of job vacancies in Canberra that do not require Australian Citizenship.
