WA State Migration update 190/489s

WA State Migration –

The WA government have a new information page now on the latest invitations dates for 190/489s here

https://www.migration.wa.gov.au/Pages/Skilled%20Migration%20WA/Invitation-rounds.aspx

It is slightly misleading as only 142 applications have been approved until the end of February 2019. Much less than half of the 800 invites they claim to have sent out are able to get the job offer required and it is unlikely WA will eventually sponsor more than 400 for the year.

WA have been approved for 2500 places for 2019/2020 now though. And we met with them on the 16th April 2019 to provide evidence that they have to do two things ..

– Add some trade occupations to the graduate list
– Make the 12 months job offer much easier than it currently is

Any questions to query@iscah.com thanks
