Queensland is seeking to attract highly skilled and employable international post graduate alumni in target occupations which are difficult to fill from the local labour market.
Queensland makes nominations for eligible post graduate alumni under the Skilled – Nominated (subclass 190), which allow alumni to live and work in Queensland permanently.
You can apply for this visa through the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) using SkillSelect.
To be eligible, you must have the criteria relevant to an occupation on the relevant Queensland Skilled Occupation List.
To check if your occupation is eligible, you can download the relevant list below:
- Skilled Occupation List for International Post-Graduate Alumni [PDF] (subclass 190 visa) for holders of a Masters degree
- The Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List for holders of a PhD
- The criteria for both the Masters and PhD clients is shown on the Alumni QSOL.
