The Department of Home Affairs has announced the 10th of September is the last day for state and territory governments to nominate and for invitations to be issued for the subclass 489 visa.
We will be focusing on processing all subclass 489 applications prior to this date. The processing times for subclass 190 applications may become extended during this period.
As the current processing time is up to 12 weeks, we urge all applicants who are ready to apply for a subclass 489 nomination to lodge their applications by early August at the latest.
We (Tasmanian government) cannot guarantee that applications for 489 nomination lodged after early August will be able to be processed before the 10th of September.
