The Queensland State Migration Program is closed and will remain closed until further notice.

The new Queensland business nomination criteria is currently being finalised and when available, will be published on the homepage of our website.

This new criteria announcement will coincide with the launch of our new website, and name, Migration Queensland.

From then on – ‘Business and Skilled Migration Queensland’ will be known as ‘Migration Queensland’.

If you have been nominated by BSMQ for a 188 visa prior to 1 July 2021, you will be subject to current 188 criteria. However, you are able to submit your visa application to Home Affairs after this date, as long as it meets the normal 60-day requirement.

When the Migration Queensland program 2021-22 opens at a later date you will be subject to the new subclass 188 criteria.

Thank you for your interest in the Queensland State Nomination migration program and we look forward to updating you further in the coming weeks.
