Subclass 190 Tasmanian Skilled Employment Pathway – Gold Priority Attribute

The qualifying work duration for the gold priority characteristic has been changed from three to six months in order to avoid confusion. For all other attributes, it still remains three months.

Subclass 190 And 491 Tasmanian Skilled Graduate Pathway – Job Offer Green Attribute

This attribute’s goal to recognize graduate programme employment offers received before study completion has been clarified by the following rewording:

Offer for graduate employment program. Must be full-time, received prior to graduation, related to your skills assessment or Tasmanian study and be from a medium or large* Tasmanian business that has been operating in Tasmania for more than 5 years. (Offers from paid training programmes like income tax training are ineligible.)

However, those who expressed their interest before October 5, 2022, would be given considerable flexibility.

Subclass 190 Tasmanian Established Resident Priority Attributes

This pathway has been updated to include additional priority attributes. The interim registration form has also been updated to include these.
