The Department of Home Affairs has finally released the nomination allocations for skilled visas for program year 2023/2024.
What are nomination allocations?
The Migration Program settings grant states and territories nomination allocations across various visa categories. Notably, the categories include the Skilled – Nominated (subclass 190), Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) (subclass 491), and Business Innovation and Investment Program (BIIP). Each state and territory then employs unique criteria to assess and choose eligible applicants to nominate under their jurisdiction.

The allocation of nominations signifies the maximum number of new primary applicants that a state or territory can nominate within a program year. While these allocations account for new applications, they also integrate into the existing caseload for the aforementioned visa categories.
