Process and priorities for Nomination.

While the program will be open to all applicants who meet the minimum published criteria, the #Ministry of Home Affairs has directed that all nominations must be justifiable in relation to their possible contribution to the economic recovery of Australia and follow three priorities:

  • Currently, applicants in Australia are able to demonstrate their potential to make a major contribution to economic recovery through professional jobs.
  • Nomination applications for high-quality subclass 188 and 132 (Business Innovation and Investment Program)
  • Critical applicants to support the response of Tasmania to the COVID-19 pandemic, including individuals who provide critical or specialized medical services, critical skills needed to sustain the supply of vital goods and services or services in sectors critical to the economic recovery of Australia

What are the critical roles?

  • Engaged by the Government of #Tasmania and directly assisted by Tasmania’s COVID-19 response
  • providing critical or specialist medical services or delivering medical supplies potentially associated with the COVID-19 response. This includes all general nursing and medical positions with the Tasmanian Health Service
  • directly involved in the supply of essential goods and services (medical technology, critical infrastructure, telecommunications, engineering and mining, supply chain logistics, agricultural technology, food production, and the maritime industry) including highly skilled and specialized roles in:
    • infrastructure engineering and maintenance such as dams, large-/high-complexity bridges, irrigation schemes, transport logistics planning, and maintenance
    • agriculture such as artificial insemination technicians, wool classers, livestock pregnancy scanners
    • the supply of essential goods and services which would be in jeopardy without the applicant.
  • delivering services in sectors critical to economic recoveries such as financial technology, large scale manufacturing, film and television production, and emerging technology which:
    • must be high-value/highly-skilled/specialised roles
    • would normally include a significant and recognized contribution to export income, significant flow-on employment, and economic benefits, high-value national/ international exposure.

What do you mean by genuine, ongoing, and meaningful contribution to the Tasmanian economy?

  • Jobs in highly trained, hard-to-fill positions
  • High-value skills or expertise that is not readily accessible in the local community
  • High-value long-term financial contribution to the local economy that #contributes to additional job outcomes for locals
  • Participation in a Tasmanian company or enterprise that is heavily dependent on the continuing presence of the applicant in Tasmania
  • A strong, plausible ability to live in Tasmania and contribute to the growth of skills that are needed in Tasmania.
