Business and Skilled Migration Queensland (BSMQ) has temporarily suspended the acceptance of all applications for Queensland Skilled Visa Nominations under the State Nominated scheme Subclass 190 & 489, due to having reached our DOHA allocated ceiling.
If you currently have a paid application with BSMQ that has not been finalised, you can either choose to:
- stay in the queue to be processed once applications have been reopened OR
- request a refund and your application will be withdrawn.
If you have submitted an EOI with SkillSelect that has not been considered, your EOI is no longer valid and you will be required to resubmit an EOI once the application process has been reopened. Please note that there may be changes made to the Queensland Skilled Occupation list. Only EOIs meeting new criteria will be considered.
