Department of Home Affairs limit of EOI invitations

The Australian Government has placed a limit on the number of visas available for the General Skilled Migration Program for each of the eligible skilled occupations.

The Northern Territory Government will tell you if they cannot nominate you because your occupation has reached its quota.

NT Migration Occupation List

Australia’s Northern Territory (NT) Migration Occupation List includes occupations that are:

If your occupation is not on the list but is on the Australian Government’s current list of eligible skilled occupations you can still apply for NT Government nomination.

You must provide strong evidence of good employment prospects in the NT either in your occupation or a closely related skilled occupation.

You can show you have good employment prospects by providing:

A statement describing how your skills and experience meet NT employer needs

Evidence your occupation has been advertised in the NT multiple times and explanation of how your qualifications and experience match the job vacancy – you could provide screen dumps of the job adverts but webpage links are not sufficient

Feedback from potential NT employers

An offer of employment letter from an NT employer

Evidence of strong, well-established family connections in the NT.

Offshore applicants

For a number of occupations on the Northern Territory Migration Occupation List, if you are applying from offshore, you must provide evidence of an offer of employment in your nominated occupation or in a closely related skilled occupation.

International graduates

If you are an international graduate who has not completed at least two years study in Australia’s Northern Territory (NT) but you completed your studies in another Australian state, you can apply for nomination.

You need to show that you have lived and worked in the NT in your skilled occupation or a closely related skilled occupation for over six months before applying for nomination.

NT Government responsibilities

Australia’s Northern Territory (NT) Government decides if it will offer you a nomination. Your employment prospects in the NT and NT industry needs are important factors in the decision.

Occupations on the NT Migration Occupation List do not represent specific job vacancies.

A nomination from the NT Government is not a job guarantee. You will have to compete in the NT labour market and you will be responsible for finding your own employment and accommodation.

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

Success in finding employment in the NT will depend on employer requirements, your qualifications, skills and experience and your level of English.

By applying for nomination you must acknowledge that the NT Government:

Nomination relates exclusively to the NT and does not apply outside of the NT

Is not responsible for finding you employment, accommodation or providing financial assistance

Is not liable for any inaccuracies or omissions in the information it provides you relating to your application, nor are its employees.
