[h=1]Important DIAC Announcement[/h]Published 5th August 2013

On 5 August 2013 the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) announced that state and territory governments (including the ACT) are not able to nominate any intending migrants for a points tested visa from the following occupations:



  • Chemical and Materials Engineers;
  • ICT Business and Systems Analysts;
  • Electronics Engineers;
  • Telecommunications Engineering Professionals;
  • Other Engineering Professional; and
  • Software and Applications Programmers.


DIAC has been receiving a high level of demand for these occupations. To address this, invitations for these occupations will now be issued by DIAC twice per month (pro rata) over the 2013-14 program year. These invitations will be only issued to applicants for the Skilled Independent (Subclass 189) visa which is not state or territory nominated.
