Please read important information if you already live in Australia.

Australia's Northern Territory (NT) Government can nominate highly skilled professionals and tradespeople for visas.

Nomination is possible if you have a positive skills assessment for a skilled occupation on the Australian Government's current list of eligible skilled occupations and the NT Migration Occupation List.

The assessment must be from the authorised Australian assessment body.

You need to have skills and experience that match the needs of NT employers and are in demand in the NT.

The NT Government participates in the Skilled Regional (Provisional) (Subclass 489) visa and Skilled Nominated (Subclass 190) visa schemes.

To apply for NT Government nomination you must lodge:

  • a nomination application with the NT Government
  • an Expression of Interest (EOI) on the Australian Government’s SkillSelect service.

The NT Government does not select candidates for nomination from the SkillSelect service.

To get an invitation from the Australian Government to lodge a visa application under the General Skilled Migration program you must have lodged an EOI on the SkillSelect service.

The SkillSelect service allows overseas nationals interested in migrating to record personal and professional details.

The Australian Government's Visa Finder can help you find the right visa.
