The Northern Territory Department of Trade Business and Innovation has announced that sponsorship for subclass 190 and 489 skilled visas is suspended immediately until 1 July for applicants outside NT due to recent changes to the skilled migration program and implementation of a new online applicant system by NT.

The suspension applies to all applicants who are not in the NT and a application file number from the NT has not been issued. Current applicants who have been assigned a Migration NT file number are not affected by the suspension. For more information, visit the NT sponsorship website.
