As is the situation in other jurisdictions, the ACT is facing a significant increase in demand for the relatively small number of nomination places allocated by Home Affairs. We are currently investigating options to fairly manage the increased demand for the ACT 190 nomination program. As we work through these issues and consider options to manage demand, the program will remain suspended for Canberra residents with nominated occupations listed as ‘closed’ on the current ACT Occupation List.
