Need help with state nomination?

​​​​​The Government of Western Australia nominates eligible migrants for the Skilled Nominated and Regional (Provisional) Skilled Nominated visa categories. Skilled Migration Western Australia (SMWA) processes nominations on behalf of the State Government. If you are nominated by SMWA you are given an automatic invitation to apply for the visa from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
