Program Review - ACT 190 nomination

Published 15th October 2018

The ACT Government is undertaking a review of the 190 nomination program to ensure the policy settings enable the program to manage the increased demand. Changes to the program will aim to achieve a sustainable skilled migration program that is better aligned to meet the ACT’s skills needs and is equipped to target applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to the ACT and are able to contribute to the ACT community and economy.

The ACT Government recently conducted a number of stakeholder workshops, which offered a collaborative opportunity to hear valuable feedback on the design and implementation of the program moving forward. The outcomes of the review and future management of the ACT Skilled Migration 190 nomination program will be informed by the consultation and stakeholder feedback, as well as research and analysis undertaken by the Directorate. Updates regarding the status of the program review will be provided in the near future.
