Effective immediately (13 September 2016 at 4pm AEST) applications for ACT nomination from overseas residents will not be accepted. If you are living overseas you will not be able to commence an application for ACT nomination of a Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa until the program reopens in 2017.
Applications lodged on or before 13 September 2016 will be processed in queue order.
This action does not affect Canberra based applicants. You are still able to apply for ACT nomination if you meet the nomination criteria.

"I believe a great city like Canberra needs to be known in every corner of the globe"
Canberra is small enough to offer a relaxed and natural environment with a countryside-like feeling and at the same time big enough to offer all amenities required for a dynamic and modern contemporary living in a world level city.
One of my favourite things about Canberra is the true luxury of life here; everyone appears to be happy and vibrant.
