She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Victoria State Nomination Re-Open COVID-19 Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, Australia has been in a very alert mode. They have been closing their borders since. 

There have been delays in processing Australian visa applications, and some limited visas that people can apply for, General skilled migration, for example. People can still apply for these visa programs, however, due to COVID-19 pandemics, many state nominations are closed.

Well, we’ve got good news for you skilled migrants in Victoria now!

Starting from 8 September 2020 until 5 October 2020, Victoria is opening its nomination program for Skilled Nominated Visa subclass 190 and Skilled Regional Sponsored subclass 491. This program is based on the Federal Budget that will be started on 6 October 2020.

As this is only a temporary program, the state limits the number of invitations and aims more on targeting skilled workers in the more targeted fields in order to contribute to Victoria’s economic restoration and health aspect during COVID-19 Pandemic.

What are the occupations that are eligible for Victoria Skilled Program during COVID-19?

Well, basically it is for any occupations that the state may consider as vital for Victoria’s economic and health aspects. However, there are many occupations that are considered more critical such as health-related occupation, IT, and Engineering. These critical skills are said to be given priority over other applicants.

For those whose occupations are not listed as critical skills, don’t worry, your application will still be considered. Anyway, it will have to be in a queue until the state has screened the critical occupations first.

Will Victoria State Nominations COVID-19 apply for both onshore and offshore applicants?

Unfortunately, this program is limited only for onshore applicants, with some requirements such as:

  • Already be living in Victoria;
  • Already be working in Victoria (minimum six-month employment);
  • Work in a highly-skilled occupation in health or medical research which supports Victoria’s economic recovery and/or health response.
