Have you been keeping an eye out on the ever-changing migration news and updates? This blog will hopefully provide a sign of relief to know that your occupation is now on the skilled occupation list. https://www.nsw.gov.au/topics/visas-and-migration/skilled-visas/nsw-skilled-occupation-lists In saying that, The Australian Government has recently added more occupations to the list beyond just engineering, nursing and IT professions!!

The 190 is a permanent visa for points tested skilled workers who are nominated by a state or territory government agency. NSW uses a selection-based invitation process to ensure that NSW nominees are aligned to the skills needs of the state’s economy. You cannot directly apply.
