The Government of South Australia have received a limited number of interim allocation places for the State General Skilled Migration and Business Migration Program for 2020/2021. It is expected other States will announce their interim allocation places in due course.

The Federal Government will review the full nomination allocation for all local States as part of the budget planning for the current financial year 2020/2021, which is expected to take place in early October 2020.

The South Australia Government is currently reviewing the requirements and the application process for nominations under the General Skilled and Business Programs with a view to applications being open in late August 2020.

Further, the SA Government provides:

Based on direction from the Department of Home Affairs, applications will be prioritised according to:

  1. High quality applications within the Business Innovation and Investment Program, with those who have already lodged an ‘Intention to Apply’ given priority consideration.
  2. Applicants critical to supporting South Australia’s response to the COVID19 pandemic, including individuals providing critical or specialist medical services, critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services; or delivering services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery.
  3. Early consideration to onshore applicants that satisfy the above criteria.

Applicants with critical skills or working in critical sectors include:

  • those providing critical or specialist medical services, including air ambulance, medical evacuations and delivering critical medical supplies
  • with critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services (such as in medical technology, critical infrastructure, telecommunications, engineering and mining, supply chain logistics, agricultural technology, food production, and the maritime industry)
  • delivering services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery (such as financial technology, large scale manufacturing, film and television production and emerging technology)
