NSW will apply these changes to all SkillSelect EOIs regardless of when they were submitted. They will apply to both onshore and offshore EOIs.


Subclass 491

Offshore candidates are now eligible to submit a Registration of Interest (ROI) under Stream 3. The January submission window will open at 12 am 1 January 2022 and close at 11:59 pm 31 January 2022. NSW advises that the likelihood of being invited to apply for a subclass 491 nomination from offshore is very low.
