As a skilled migrant you can apply for ACT nomination of a Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa if the status of your nominated occupation is shown as ‘open’ on the ACT Occupation List and you meet the nomination criteria as shown in the guidelines.

ACT residents working in a skilled occupation may be eligible to apply for ACT nomination, even if the occupation is listed as ‘closed’ on the ACT Occupation List.

ACT Occupation List (Updated September 2016)

The occupations identified do not relate to a specific job vacancy, nor represent a guarantee of a job in a specific occupation. Your success finding employment will depend on the employer requirements, relevant skills and experience and level of English ability. As a new resident you may not be eligible to apply for some Federal Government positions where citizenship or security clearance is required.

You must meet the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) visa criteria before you can apply for ACT nomination.
