Living & working in Queensland requirement

 

You may be to apply under this stream if you are currently working and living in Queensland in the nominated skilled occupation for your visa application (or closely related). Hence if you are in Australia and you live in another state, you need to move to Queensland and satisfy these requirements before your state sponsorship application can be approved.

 

Closely related occupations are those sharing the first four digits of the ANZSCO occupation code. For example, the following are closing related occupations with the same first four digits 2211:

  • 221111 Accountant (General)
  • 221112 Management Accountant
  • 221113 Taxation Accountant

 

You would need to satisfy the following to apply under this pathway:

 

  • Positive skill assessment for an occupation on the QSOL ‘Working in Queensland’ list
  • Demonstrate full-time employment (post-qualification) in your nominated occupation for the past 6 months in Queensland
  • Demonstrate current and on-going employment with a Queensland-based employer for a further 12 months (minimum of 35 hours per week)
  • Commit to living and working in Queensland for 2 years from visa grant

 

Age:

Primary applicant must be under 45 years of age at the time of invitation.

 

English requirement
Please note that additional English language requirements apply for some occupations. Please see the QSOL for state nomination in relation to relevant English requirement. If there is no additional requirement regarding English language ability, then the applicant must have at least Competent English ability.

 

Skilled occupation assessment
The applicant must nominate a skilled occupation befitting their skills and qualifications which is identified on the QSOL for state nomination (unless you are applying as a PhD graduate and you have access to a wider list of eligible occupations – see below information). Potential applicants must have a current skills assessment completed by one of the Australian Authorised Assessment bodies.

 

Work experience

Some occupations have additional work experience and specialisation requirements that are noted on the QSOL.

 

SkillSelect Points Test 
The applicant must score a minimum of 65 points on the SkillSelect Points Test (190 visa state nomination automatically achieves 5 points).
