WA Skilled Migration Program Update

The WA State Nominated Migration Program includes the Skilled Nominated Visa (190) and the Skilled Provisional Regional Visa (491).

WA has two distinct application pathways:

  • The graduate stream for applicants who recently graduated form a WA University. Graduates can chose from a substantial list of occupations to nominate.
  • The general stream for all other (including offshore) applicants. Only health professionals with a few select occupations are eligible for the general stream in WA.

Numbers of invitations for the current financial year

WA continues to focus on the graduate stream. The total number of invitations issued for WA graduates in the current financial year was 2847. The total number of invitations issued in the general stream was only 122.

Numbers of invitations in the last invitation round (30st April 2020)

The last invitation round also reflects the above trend:

  • Graduate Stream invitations for both visas: 274
  • General Stream invitations for both visas: 16
