Minimum Eligibility Requirements for Victorian State Sponsorship

In any type of visa that you plan to apply it is essential that you must provide factual, precise and absolute information. Applicants are necessary to divulge information about all previous visa applications. The condition of false or misleading information in an application could direct to the application being refused.

It is also significant that you lodge a complete application. A complete application is one that provides all information compulsory for a decision to be made. You should support your application with as much information as possible at the time of lodgement as a decision may be made solely on the information that you have provided with your application. If you do not provide a complete application, your visa application may be rejected.

You may be asked to provide further documents or information relating to your particular circumstances after your application has been lodged. The list of supporting documentation provided is not exhaustive. You may also include additional documents if they are relevant to your application. You should provide certified copies of all documents.

If you plan to lodge an application for Victorian state nomination, we encourage you to read this information and you must also check the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website to ensure you meet all visa eligibility requirements.
