As it is a sponsored visa, it needs to be sponsored by a state or territory. To get sponsored for 190 visas, you need to lodge a separate application to the state you are currently living in. Different states have different requirements that you need to meet to be sponsored.
Some common requirement that each state requires is that you had moved to the state during the first half of the year of your staying in Australia. You have to meet this criterion to be sponsored.
Another criterion is you are living in that state for the last two years. If not, the sponsor board will not approve you.
If you meet these criteria, you have to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). This EOI plays a major role in your nomination for the visa. A few documents are required for EOI 190 Visa. You can find the required documents listed on the tabs below.
