Australian Immigration – Victorian State Migration Plan

With the release of thier long awaited state migration plan the Victorian State Government are now accepting skilled state sponsored visa applications.

There is a cap of 4,500 on the overall number of visas granted to skilled migrants by the Victorian Government for 2010/11. This cap includes primary and secondary applicants. So a Midwife and her husband and child , for example, would count for 3 visas out of the 4,500.  The occupations listed on the State Sponsorship Eligibility List are also limited by a quota to fairly distribute the visas across all the job categories and meet the skill shortages for Victoria.
