Processing Times for South Australia 

Immigration SA provides state nominations for general skilled and business migrants who are intending to relocate to South Australia for work or business.

For these programs, Immigration SA offers state government nomination, which if approved, allows applicants to apply for a visa with Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). The issuing or granting of all visas rests with DIAC.

For employer sponsored applications, Immigration SA’s role is to act as the regional certifying body (RCB), which assesses whether an application meets migration criteria and provides advice to guide the DIAC decision.

For all state applications, Immigration SA will notify you, the main applicant (or the authorised recipient), of the outcome via email.

The processing times for state applications vary across visa types.  Immigration SA makes every effort to process all nominations quickly, within the timeframes detailed below.

The average processing times detailed below apply to applications that are lodged with complete and accurate documentation.  If during the assessment period it is clear that we will need to obtain more information from you, processing will take longer.

All applications are processed in the order of receipt of online submission.
