Selection process

On a monthly basis a set number of expressions of interest (‘EOIs’) are selected from SkillSelect to receive an invitation to apply for State nomination. If you are invited, WA Migration Services will contact you via email with a link to the State nomination application form.

Ranking system

EOIs are selected based on the following ranking system.

1. Applicants eligible for the General stream will be ranked in accordance with the table below:

​General stream
​» highest EOI points score; and
​​» oldest EOI submission date.

2. Applicants eligible for the Graduate stream will be ranked in accordance with the table below:

Graduate stream – Higher Education Graduates Graduate stream – VET Graduates
» completed a PhD or Masters qualification in Western Australia; » completed a VET qualification at Advanced Diploma level in Western Australia;
» completed a Honours degree or other higher degree in Western Australia; » completed a VET qualification at Diploma level in Western Australia;
» completed a Bachelor degree in Western Australia; » completed a VET qualification at Certificate IV level in Western Australia;
» highest EOI points score; and » completed a VET qualification at Certificate III level in Western Australia;
» oldest EOI submission date. » highest EOI points score; and
» oldest EOI submission date.

If you qualify for both the General and Graduate stream, you will be offered an invitation through the General stream in the first instance.

If multiple EOIs are ranked at the same level, invitations will be issued based on the EOI submission date.

If your EOI indicates you are seeking State nomination for both the subclass 190 and subclass 491 visa, you will generally be invited for the subclass 491 visa in the first instance. This is because you will generally have a higher EOI points score for this visa.
