If you live in Queanbeyan, in southern NSW, you may be eligible for both ACT and NSW Regional Migration.

Marketing Specialists, ICT, Chefs, Civil Engineering, Early Childhood Teachers, and many other occupations have received consistent invitations with comparatively low necessary marks over the last year. Check out the “ICT” and “Civil Engineering Professionals” invitation round trends below:


There are 1400 visas available for skilled workers in regional areas (subclass 491).

There are 600 visas available for skilled nominees (subclass 190).



The Canberra Matrix is a point-based system that differs from the subclass 189 point system.

The ACT Critical Skills List took over from the ACT Occupation List.

If you want to apply for an Australian Capital Territory (ACT) nomination through the skilled migration streams, you must first go through the Canberra Matrix system.

·       Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa – subclass 491

·       Skilled Nominated (Permanent) visa – subclass 190


This year, the Canberra Small Business Owner Pathway was introduced. You’ll also need to complete the ACT Matrix if you want to pursue the Small Business Owner option. 

There are two stages to submitting an application for an ACT nomination:

1.     To formally declare your interest in applying for an ACT nomination, fill out a ‘Canberra Matrix’ (you can choose either ACT 491 or 190 nominations). ​

You will be chosen and invited to apply for the ACT nomination if you are among the top candidates with the highest marks. Because the demand for ACT nomination seats each year far outnumbers the number of nomination spots available, your Matrix score will not be rated.

2.     After receiving the invitation to apply for the ACT nomination, submit the online application and pay the fees within 14 days.
You must provide proof of your eligibility and Matrix points claimed at the time of Matrix submission in the relevant documentation.
