Explore the Skilled Nomination Territories Before Emigrating to Australia

If you are thinking of emigrating to Australia on a 190 Skills Nominated visa by being nominated by an Australian state or territory government, you will have to know a few things about each area before applying. This particular visa will allow you and your dependent family to permanently live, work, and study in Australia if you meet the requirements of a territory or state’s specific skilled occupation list.

Australian Capital Territory (ACT) 

Do you want to be close to the country’s capital and the hustle and bustle of the city? The ACT might be the ideal location for you. Here you will be able to take advantage of the best food and wine pairings while being able to enjoy cultural outings or enjoying an active day out on the extensive bicycle network around the city of Canberra.

New South Wales  (NSW) 

Here you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxed, yet modern, lifestyle with the perks of premium healthcare and education. Not only will you be able to appreciate Sydney’s Opera House but you’ll also be able to explore beaches, restaurants and various shopping options. 

Northern Territory 

This is Australia’s smallest territory and the youngest population. If you’re seeking adventure, the Northern Territory in central Australia is the place. Here you’ll find the red outback, various scenic national parks, while also being able to return to the conveniences of the city coupled with the beaches of Darwin. 


Over to the northeast of the country with Brisbane as its capital, this state offers world-class surfing on the Gold Coast, and coastlines that stretch several thousand kilometres with access to the Great Barrier Reef. 

South Australia 

Stretching over arid land, lies the state of South Australia. This is home to vineyards in the Barossa Valley and also where you’ll get the opportunity to observe migrating whales along the coastline, and koalas in treetops. 


Yes, you can live and work on the island state of Tasmania! Located about 240 kilometres from mainland Australia, this state will provide you with wildlife, adventure, history and a cultural lifestyle.


This is Australia’s second-smallest state, with its lively capital Melbourne set on the banks of the Yarra River. If you’re looking for adventure in your backyard, Victoria offers forests, beaches, lakes, mountains and wineries.

Western Australia 

The capital city, Perth, has ranked in the top 10 most liveable cities and it’s no surprise as it offers a variety of options. With pristine beaches, surfing opportunities, vineyards, the natural splendours of Kings Park and Botanic Garden, you will not be short of activities.
