Victoria State Sponsorship for ICT Occupations Closed for 3 Months

Victoria State Sponsorship for ICTIn one of the latest news coming in, the DIBP has announced that due to high volume  of applications for ICT occupations, skilled state nomination online applications i.e.  for  subclass 190 and 489 will not be accepted between 1st Oct, 2014 and 5th Jan, 2015.  The closure will be for a period of 3 months beginning next week.

The occupations that will be affected during this period are:

135112    ICT Project Manager

261111    ICT Business Analyst

261112    Systems Analyst

261311    Analyst Programmer

261312    Developer Programmer

Who Will and Won’t be Affected by this Temporary Closure?

The applications filed before 1st Oct won’t be affected by this. They will be assessed and the results will be announced as per the procedural guidelines.

Only the applicants filing for an application under any of the ICT occupations listed above will be affected. However, it’s nothing to worry. The closure is temporary and it in fact gives the applicants more time to prepare their file and arrange all documents  well in advance. Once the Victoria State Sponsorship Program opens in January, applicants can submit their file without having to wait any further.

The purpose of closure is to work on the outstanding applications and reduce the process timelines for the future applicants. Besides that, Victorian Government Nomination remains open and PhD and 457 pathways won’t be affected during this period.
