Important announcement: Migration Queensland program opening for 2023 - 24
Migration Queensland has now opened its state nomination skilled migration program, on 5 September 2023.
As we have received a reduced allocation from the Department of Home Affairs this financial year (1550 skilled nominations and no BIIP allocation), Queensland's state nominated program will be very competitive. Migration Queensland will begin inviting selected applicants from the end of September 2023, and hold invitation rounds at the end of each month for the remainder of financial year 2023 - 24. The number of applicants we invite each month will be capped to ensure an even and consistent rate of invitation throughout the program year. Due to this competitive process, please ensure that you explore alternative migration options.
If you are interested in applying for Queensland nomination, please first review both the Department of Home Affairs and Migration Queensland criteria. If you meet all eligibility criteria and wish to lodge an EOI, you must submit a brand new EOI in SkillSelect. Migration Queensland will only consider EOI's lodged on or after 5 September 2023 - updated EOI's will not be considered.
Our website pages have been updated with detailed criteria for the 2023 - 24 program, please see the links below for more information:
- The Queensland Offshore Skilled Occupation List (QSOL)
- Skilled workers onshore
- Skilled workers offshore
- Graduates of a Queensland university
- 491 Small Business Owners (SBO) pathway
We look forward to supporting industry and business to retain skilled migrants already working in their nominated occupations in Queensland, and also welcoming new migrants and their families to Queensland to fill critical shortages across the state.
Thank you for your interest in the Queensland state nomination program.
