IRCC Launches Category-Based Selection Draw for Express Entry
As per the recent declaration by the NT immigration authority, now the application portal is open for the onshore applicants. That means all the eligible onshore applicants can submit their General Skilled Migration (GSM) nomination applications.
There is an online application system available for the onshore application for Northern Territory nomination under GSM visa. Whereas, until the national border restrictions remain in place, the application will be closed for the offshore applicants.
There are certain eligibility criteria for the onshore applicants which they have to meet before applying for the nomination.
There are plenty of applications that were submitted while the program was the suspension and those are waiting for their assessment turn. In this context, the government decides that all the applications will be assessed by the time of their submission and those applications are close enough to their visa expiry date that will be not given any priority in the processing.
It is advisable to lodge the applications as early as possible once the candidate meets the criteria. Especially, those candidates who have their visa expiring dates are nearby should take The Advice from the Aspire Square. It is necessary that you should remain on the lawful visa status in Australia while submitting and processing your nomination application.
