The Government of Australia has not yet allocated nomination quotas to the states and regions for the year 2020 to 2021 program.
The Northern Territory (NT) Government is presently unable to issue nominations under the General Skilled Migration program and the Business Investment and Innovation Program.
Currently, if you are currently living in the NT, you will be able to lodge new applications for NT nomination under the general Skilled migration program, and these applications will resume to be assessed. Offshore GSM nomination submissions remain closed. BIIP nomination applications remain open.
However, make sure if your request is successful, you will only be issued a nomination once the Government has allocated quotas to the Northern Territory.
Given the uncertainty in allocations for the current program year, there is no guarantee that all applicants who meet the NT nomination criteria will be nominated.
If your exiting visa is about to expire, you should note that your application may not be finalized before your visa finishes. Please also note that the nominee application fee is non-refundable.
