Is Job offer required for Victoria Nomination?

My job code is 261313. I have 85 points applied for 189 visa, and also for Victoria state nomination 190 (90 points). To get Victoria state nomination is job offer required for my job code.

Hi @Jaas

I do not think a job offer is required for Victoria for Software Engineer Code.

See the official list and I do not see any special requirements.

Hi Friends,

In need of a quick clarification. Online resources says that in order to obtain VIC state sponsorship one need to have a valid employment offer. Is it mandatory as I am currently employed in a different state in Australia.

Have any onshore interstate candidates received pre-invite without employment offer and got final approval ?

Thanks in advance.
