Victoria and Queensland suspend State Sponsorship Applications
Victoria and Queensland have both suspended acceptance of applications for state sponsorship due to high volumes and backlogs of applications.
BSMQ (Business & Skilled Migration Queensland) is temporarily suspending issuing new invitations for business and skilled migration until further notice.
Victoria is not accepting any new Subclass 190 or Subclass 489 nomination applications. Nomination applications received prior to 15 May 2018 will continue to be assessed, but outcomes may be delayed. And it is only a temporary closure.
