How to get your ACT Nomination approved.
Have you received an invitation to apply for ACT Nomination under the Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 or the Skilled Work Regional Subclass 491 visa pathway? If so, congratulations! This must be the moment you have been working hard for. You are now one step closer to applying for your visa. Without an approved ACT Nomination, you will not meet the eligibility criteria of your chosen visa pathway, and therefore it is important to get it right.
Here are a few important tips to keep in mind when preparing your ACT Nomination application.
- Before accepting the invitation, make sure your Skill Select EOI responses are correct. You will not be able to update them once your ACT nomination is approved and confirmed on Skill Select. If your Skill Select responses are incorrect and you decide not to apply for the visa, you won’t be able to reapply for the ACT nomination.
- Think twice before accepting the invitation. Only one nomination place is offered per person. For example, if your subclass 491 state nomination is approved, you cannot apply for subclass 190 state nomination.
- Once invited to apply for ACT Nomination, you will have 14 days only to prepare your application. You must submit the application and pay the service fee within this time. The application fee must be paid at the time of lodgement.
- ACT Nomination team will only consider the documents that you attached to the application at the time of lodgement. They will not accept any additional documents post-lodgement and they won’t contact you for any further information.
- Providing the correct evidence for your current employment is important, especially for overseas residents. All applicants must successfully demonstrate they are currently employed in a genuine position. This is in addition to demonstrating the matrix points claimed for employment. The evidence of employment must cover the claimed period up until the date of invitation (not the date of Canberra Matrix submission).
- If claiming points for ACT residence, the evidence must be provided for the duration of the claimed ACT residence up until the date of invitation.
- English tests and skill assessment reports must be valid at the date of ACT Nomination submission.
- Label all attached documents correctly to make sure your documents are not missed or misinterpreted. To speed up the processing time, do not attach documents that are not required.
- Finally, make sure you understand ACT Nominations requirements and ensure you have successfully substantiated all claims before you submit your application.
