The Northern Territory (NT) Government sponsors highly skilled professionals and tradespeople who have positive skills assessments for skilled occupations on the Consolidated Skilled Occupation List (CSOL) and skills and experience that align with the needs of NT employers and are in demand in the NT’s labour market.
The NT participates in the following visa sponsorship schemes:
An application for NT Government sponsorship can be lodged either before or after applying for an Expression of Interest (EOI) on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s (DIBP) SkillSelect website.
SkillSelect is an online database through which skilled overseas nationals, who are interested in migrating to Australia, can record their details to be considered for a skilled visa through an EOI.
Australian state and territory governments and employers can search and locate people who have registered their interest in migration through SkillSelect.
The NT Government can identify and nominate suitable candidates and this will result in them being requested by the DIBP to lodge their visa applications.
