Publish Date: 25/11/2023

Common Reasons Applications Are Declined

Before applying for a NSW nomination make sure you meet our eligibility criteria. Failing to do so will result in your application being declined. Here are some common reasons are declined by our office:

  • Modification of SkillSelect EOI Post-Invitation: It is crucial to note that any modifications made to your SkillSelect EOI after receiving an invitation will lead to the decline of your application. This is a strict policy with no exceptions. We verify the last modify date of the EOI during the application assessment to ensure compliance.
  • Residency: To be eligible for NSW nomination, you must meet our residency requirement. Failure to meet this requirement will result in your application being declined.
  • Skilled Employment Claims: If you claim employment before you are deemed skilled by NSW, your application will be declined. For details on when you can claim skilled employment, refer to our 'Common Questions About Skilled Visas' page.
  • Points Claims: You must provide evidence that you were eligible to claim all points in your SkillSelect EOI.
  • Genuineness of Employment under Pathway 1: Applicants applying under 'Pathway 1' must genuinely meet the employment requirement. We conduct a thorough assessment of the applicant's eligible employment. Applications that do not meet this criterion will be declined.
