BlogBeat the 189 queue: Queensland to open its State Sponsorship in 2018/2019

https://visionaus.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/queensland-australia.jpg

There has been a holistic change and overhaul by the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) pertaining to the Australian immigration laws. This has been reflective from the recent increase in the minimum point’s threshold of the Australian skilled migration streams. Queensland, a bustling state that offers great employability and cultural wellbeing opportunities to countless new migrants and prospective applicants, has announced to open its state sponsorship once again for the year 2018/2019.

State sponsorship has been quite a helpful variable factor for all those prospective applicants who were short of points by a small margin. In order to meet the state sponsorship requirements it is imperative that the applicants must have to meet not only the Department of Home Affair’s eligibility criteria but also fulfil the said state’s requirements. Depending on the occupation, Queensland sponsorship has 4 different lists, discussed below:

    • Working in Queensland

 

    • For those who are offshore candidates

 

    • For those graduates who have completed their masters from Queensland

 

  • PHD students in Queensland
