[NEWS] State Sponsorship Updates: QLD


Due to a high number of EOIs, Queensland is no longer accepting new EOIs for Registered Nurses.

This is in addition to the temporary suspension of Finance Managers (ANZSCO code: 132211) and Cafe/Restaurant Managers (141111) late last year.

When: 27 February 2018 onward until further notice

Who does this affect? Skilled migration applicants applying under any of the Registered Nursing occupations on the Skilled Occupation List:

What does this mean for me?
