Skilled Migration Program – Queensland

Queensland is looking for skilled migrants to fill a range of critical skills, and their skilled program will remain open until the nomination quota is filled. The following visas are available under their skilled program:

1. Skilled Nominated (Permanent) visa
This is a points-tested visa for skilled workers who want to live and work in Queensland permanently. The graduate degree stream also offers streamlined conditions for Queensland PhD graduates.

2. Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa.
This is a 5-year, points-tested visa that leads to permanent residency and requires nominated skilled workers to live and be employed in regional Queensland (even the Gold Coast is regional). Visa holders in this category are eligible for Medicare.

If you want to migrate to Queensland on a skilled visa, please complete a General Enquiry and note that State-nominated visas allow you to live and work permanently in Queensland.
