Income threshold

To be eligible for the Independent Skilled 189 (New Zealand) Stream, you must provide a copy of the Notice of Assessment (with the tax file number removed or obscured), issued by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for each of the four most recently completed income years immediately prior to application.

As evidence that you also satisfy the residence requirement for this visa you must provide your taxable income for the five income years prior to the date of your application. Sources of taxable income are available on the ATO website.

Your taxable income for each of the four years prior to lodging you application, as recorded on the Notice of Assessment, must be at, or above, the income threshold listed in the relevant regulatory instrument for that income year. This threshold is set at the same level as the Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT) and has been AUD53,900 since 2013-14
