You can work with multiple employers in NSW to satisfy the NSW 1 year employment requirement. But, all the work should be done with same ANZSCO code that you choose to apply 190 PR.

Chances of NSW 190 Invite

NSW will be updating the ANZSCO availability for each code regularly to these status:

  • Low – You would need the highest points in your ANZSCO code to get an invite.
  • Medium – You can expect an invite with a wait of 4-5 months.
  • High – You can expect an invite easily in next draw.
  • Limited – Invites are sent occasionally.
  • Closed – No more invites to be sent in current fiscal year

The condition of 1 year work in NSW is only an eligibility criteria for some types of ANZSCO codes. There is no guarantee that you will be invited to apply for NSW 190 visa even though you satisfy the additional criteria.

NSW will invite the highest EOI score applicants who satisfy the additional criteria if applicable for their job code.


All job codes in Software and IT category have the additional criteria now except Software Tester.

  • Should be currently living in NSW AND
  • Have at-least 1 year of work experience in NSW at anytime in past. 12 months with 20 hours per week is fine.

  • Australia driver’s licence
