The state government said that its 2022-23 Skilled Migration Program is now open. According to the statement, the Victoria 2022-23 Skilled Migration Program is opened to applicants living in Victoria and overseas. The program provides skilled migrants with a pathway to permanent residency in Victoria.
The skills that successful applicants bring to Victoria benefits employers and the broader Victorian economy. The program provides two visa pathways.
The government said “as with previous years, applicants will first need to submit a Registration of Interest (ROI) and then be selected on competitive merit to apply for visa nomination.”
Before submitting a ROI, applicants should ensure that they meet all eligibility requirements and ROIs will be assessed until May 2023. The government pointed out that the selection process was highly competitive and there were over 15,000 RoIs submitted in the 2021-22 program. The government has also encouraged applicants who were not selected previously, to submit a new Registration of Interest for the 2022-23 program.
