If your skilled occupation is not on the NT Migration Occupation List but is on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL) you may still apply for NT Government nomination however, you must provide independent evidence of positive employment prospects in the NT either in your skilled occupation or a closely related skilled occupation and you can demonstrate strong, well established family connections in the NT.

Due to the high number of applicants already residing and working in the Northern Territory, offshore applicants, for a number of occupations indicated on the NT Migration Occupation List, must provide evidence of having received an offer of employment in your nominated occupation or a closely related occupation.

International graduates who have not completed at least two years of study in the NT or are holders of Subclass 485 visas who completed their studies in another Australian state will be:

Eligible Charles Darwin University graduates who have completed at least two years of study in the NT will be eligible to apply for sponsorship for the Skilled Regional Nominated (Provisional) (Subclass 489) visa and Skilled Nominated (Subclass 190) visa.

Occupations on the NT Migration Occupation List do not represent specific job vacancies. A nomination from the NT Government does not carry a job guarantee and nominated applicants will compete for positions with all people in the NT labour market and will be responsible for finding their own employment and accommodation.

While the NT Government provides information and some assistance to nominated skilled migrants, the NT Government does not provide an employment placement service or financial assistance.

Applicants should be aware in preparing their applications for nomination that the nomination will be assessed based on the skills profile they present and its relevance to the NT’s labour market. Success in finding employment in the NT will relate to an employer’s requirements, the nominee’s qualifications, skills and experience and their level of English.
