The WA Government has made changes to the requirements for the WA State Nominated Migration Program (SNMP) for applications lodged after 1 July 2023. The changes build on the current relaxation of requirements, making it easier for skilled migrants to connect with WA jobs and include:
- equal invitation ranking for Interstate and Overseas candidates;
- prioritised invitations for candidates with an occupation deemed critical in a WA industry sector (as per the WA State nomination invitation ranking system); and
- reduced employment requirements for candidates invited through a WA building and construction industry sector occupation (as classified on the WA State nomination Occupation lists).
Invitation rounds for the 2023-24 program year are anticipated to commence in August 2023.
The 2023-24 SNMP criteria and information on the program requirements is available on the State Nominated Migration Program page(opens in a new tab).
