On 11 March 2017, State elections were held in Western Australia (WA). The result is a change in government from a Liberal-National Government to a Labor Government.
As announced before the elections, the new Labor Government has suspended the WA migration state program with immediate effect.
As a consequence, both the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) Subclass 187 as well as the Skilled State Sponsored Program Subclasses 190 and 489 are under review. Applicants who have applied for state nominations will not receive an invitation until the review of the State Skilled Occupation List is concluded. Pending applications are on hold for the time being. No new applications are being accepted until further notice.
Please contact us to find out if you are affected and to get advice.
