I've looked through a fair bit of information but can't find a definitive answer.
I'm happy that you require the skills assessment and the IELTs prior to lodging an EOI.
However, once you select which states you are happy to be nominated by, do you then have to contact each State with your EOI number and do you still pay the fee to be considered.
I'm totally confused, mainly because there is a mixture of old and new information on the net, even NSW state sponsorship page doesn't look to reflect the changes to the migration system and skillselect.
Do the States look at the EOIs and invite, or do you actively contact each state with your EOI number and ask for sponsorship. (I appreciate your ASCZO code needs to be on that states specific skills demand list).
Any help appreciated
