The ACT nomination offers a pathway to the overseas skilled workers to get PR in ACT of Australia by applying for Skilled Nominated Visa Subclass 190. It has been designed to combat the skill shortage in the ACT Region.
The ACT Nomination program was partially suspended in June 2018, which will reopen now with new Merit based assessment, replacing the earlier first in, first served pattern.

ACT 190 Nomination to reopen shortly with new changes
Skilled Nominated permanent visa Subclass 190 helps applicants to get State nomination for Australia PR. It aims to invite and select the skilled and talented people for the ACT region to fulfil the labour shortage. Every year, the DHA (Department of Home Affairs) decides the nomination allocation for every Australian state. It is 800 nominations for Australian Capital Territory for the year 2018-19.
New Merit Based System for ACT nomination
The ACT government is likely to introduce new merit based assessment system for ACT nomination, replacing the old first in, first served system. The need of this system was evident in view of rising demand for ACT allocations in last few years. The new system will ensure the demand and supply balance throughout the year while addressing the ACT skill shortage more efficiently.
Demand for the 190 visa in the ACT has exceeded the Territory's allocation in recent years, so replacing the first-in, first-served system with a merit-based assessment that is more in line with other jurisdictions around Australia will moderate supply and demand throughout the year and more effectively address the ACT's skills needs.
Changes in ACT nomination pattern were on the cards
The government of ACT region discussed the program changes with the participants, employers, migration agents, as well as with the education providers, etc. to design a new nomination ranking system for the program. The new change will provide more conviction to the possible candidates and will make certain that the nominated places for Australian Capital Territory are sustained all through the year. The further details with regards to the new changes will be provided shortly by the authorities.
