NSW Government confirms invitation round to be held in September

As States and Territories have now been given their allocations for 2023-24, NSW Government has released a Statement advising that the invitation round is likely to be held in September.

The following allocations have been confirmed for NSW

Subclass 190 visa: 2650

Subclass 491 visa: 1500

Planning Levels vs Allocations

Further to response relating to lower allocation levels, NSW government has released the following statement:

“It’s essential to distinguish between Home Affairs planning levels and state and territory allocations.  

Home Affairs planning levels refer to the total number of visas that can be granted in a given financial year. This figure includes primary and secondary applicants and encompasses applications carried over from previous financial years; a significant amount in many cases. A state’s allocation refers to the number of primary applicants a state may nominate for a particular visa during a single financial year.  

Unlike planning levels, this number does not include secondary applicants. Recognising this distinction is vital for understanding the broader migration landscape and how individual states like NSW fit within it”
