Visa 190 changes since Nov 2019

Recommended Posts

Can you still apply for visa 190, appear to have read that this is closed from nov 2019 for Queensland state sponsored?

i am an accountant but being 42 feel that points on 189 would not be that competitive, I have an English speaking but unskilled husband.

What are people thoughts on obtaining a permanent visa, I want to be in mackay, qld. Read about new 5 year provisional visas but not keen on moving family/dog on one of these.

many thanks for any words of wisdom.

Hi Grimbles,

The 190 program for Queensland should open up again, but it may be around July if what I read can be believed. 
We received a 190 invite off them last week. So they’re still issuing invites.

all the best.

Mackay is regional and therefore you could for a 491. However accountant isn’t on the skilled list for QLD unfortunately

These are not "temporary" visas, they are provisional visas and, provided you abide by the conditions of the visa, there is a pathway to PR built in. However, as mentioned QLD are not nominating accountants for either of the state nominated visas at the moment.
