Exclamation 190 State Nomination Process and Steps

Hello everyone,

My boyfriend is aiming to come to Australia through Skilled Migration. He is currently on 55 points so we decided that State Sponsorship would gain him the extra 5 necessary points. We understand everything needed for the process but are a bit confused on what happens when. Can someone clarify if he has to lodge an EOI first and then apply for state nomination, or if he first apply's for state nomination (by completing the state nomination application form) and then lodges an EOI. An outline / timeline on the steps would be fantastic ! or if anyone has already applied which way did you do it ?

Would this be the correct time line

1. Lodge an EOI
2. Complete and send the State Nomination application form
3. Wait for an Invite
4. Complete Skills Assessment and IELTS
4. Apply for visa

Any advice will be greatly appreciated

the correct order is:

1.Complete Skills Assessment and IELTS .. You can do these at the same EXCEPT when you Skills Assessment requires that you demonstrate a particular level of English. In the case of Accounting you need to demonstrate that you have Academic 7's in your IELTS test. In this case you would need to do your IELTS before you can apply for skills assessment.

2. Lodge EoI

3. Wait for State to invite you to apply for State Nomination. This depend on which State you wish to apply. This, in turn, could depend on which States/Territories are sponsoring your occupation.

4. Apply for State Sponsorship

5. Once State Sponsorship approved you will receive an invitation from DIBP.

6. Apply for visa.
