Migration Tasmania Update
No further quota allocations
Migration Tasmania quota update as follows:
Tasmania’s nomination quota for the 2021-22 program year is:
Subclass 491 – 2200 places – 1415 places used
Subclass 190 – 1100 places – 871 places used
*updated 28 March 2022
How Migration Tasmania is planning to manage the remaining quota?
Migration Tasmania has received around 1000 new applications since December.
With less than 1300 places remaining and around 1300 applications for nomination yet to be finalised Migration Tasmania is very likely to significantly exceed available quota.
More than 1 480 applications for nomination are yet to be decided, including more than 610 for subclass 190 and 860 for subclass 491.
Migration Tasmania is currently considering options to manage the expected demand for nomination against the remaining places. This may include temporarily closing to new applications.
While Migration Tasmania is still accepting new applications at this stage, the current volume and limited remaining places mean that new applications may not be considered or able to be nominated in the 202122 program year.
Migration Tasmania will continue to process applications from oldest to newest but will give priority to candidates who are employed in a role directly related to their skills assessment.
All current applications which have not been processed by 30 June 2022 will be held over until the 2022-23 program year. Migration Tasmania will consider those applications against the requirements and assessment standards that were in place at the time the application was lodged.
Any applications that are approved this program year but cannot be nominated due to quota exhaustion will be held over and nominated against the 2022-23 program year quota.
Applications processed this program year that do not meet the requirements or assessment standards will be refused.
With less than 230 remaining subclass 190 places remaining, successful subclass 190 applicants who are not working in their area of their skills assessment may not be nominated until the next program year commences.
