BSMQ SKILLED PROGRAM
The Queensland State Nomination Skilled Program is closed for FY19-20.
This includes both the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) (subclass 491) and Skilled Nominated (Permanent) (subclass 190) visas.
BSMQ has not yet received advice from Home Affairs in regards to Queensland’s nomination allocation for FY20-21 and when we will be able to re-open the business and skilled program.
Once we receive advice on nomination allocation, we will post details to the BSMQ homepage and across our social media channels.
ANZSCO and Assessing Authorities
ANZSCO is a system developed to collect, publish and analyse occupation statistics across government agencies, and is being introduced by HA as the new standard to capture occupation information in all visa, settlement and citizenship programs.
ANZSCO is used within skilled visa programs, where it is a requirement for visa eligibility, as the standard by which a visa applicant’s skills to undertake a specific occupation in Australia are assessed.
The relevant assessing authority is listed against the occupations in the Migration (LIN 19/051: Specification of Occupations and Assessing Authorities) Instrument 2019. Below is an explanatory list of the abbreviations for the assessing authorities. Please note this is not an exhaustive list. For more information, please see HA’s website.
