Are you looking for a new career opportunity and lifestyle in Australia?

Migration Queensland believes in giving successful skilled migrants the opportunity to join our community and contribute to our growing economy and great lifestyle. Queensland nominates skilled migrants in occupations that are in demand for both provisional visas and permanent residency, which allows you to live and work in Queensland.

What is state nomination?

State Migration Plans were introduced to allow individual states and territories to sponsor general skilled migration applicants under a broad range of occupations to fill skilled shortages within their local labour markets. The State Migration Plans specify which occupations state and territory governments can nominate applications under and specify the number of visas that will be granted as part of this program.

Who are we?

Migration Queensland is the state nominating body for the Queensland Government and a business unit of Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ). In partnership with the Department of Home Affairs, Migration Queensland nominates successful skilled and business applicants wanting to establish themselves in Queensland.
