Temporary closure of 188/132 applications

On January 31st the Immigration of South Australia announced a temporary closure to the 188/132 state nomination applications. According to the Department of Immigration South Australia, they have exceeded the number of places made available to them by the Department of Home Affairs.

Unfortunately, current applications that have commenced, but not yet submitted on the Immigration SA website will no longer be able to be accessed.

However, applications that have been completed and submitted online will be processed as per the stated processing timelines - these times can be found on the Immigration SA website.

There have been no changes to the Subclass 892/893/888/405, applications can continue to be submitted online in accordance with processing guidelines.

South Australia Immigration expect to re-open the online applications for subclass 188/132 in late March early April, with additional places being released.

In the meantime, Immigration SA are encouraging applicants to seek out the benefits of living and doing business in South Australia with online research, and planned visits to better prepare themselves for future applications.
