Invitation process and cut-offs
Department of Home Affairs has invited the clients to apply for the relevant visa who have achieved the highest ranks.
Department of Home Affairs says:
“For clients who have equal points scores, the time at which they reached their points score for that subclass (referred to as the date of effect) determines their order of invitation. Expressions of Interest with earlier dates of effect are invited before later dates.”
In the 11 September 2020 invitation round
Point scores and the dates of effect cut off for the pro-rata occupations.
Due to high levels of demand, and in keeping with previous program years,
The below occupation groups will be subject to pro-rata arrangements to ensure the availability of invitations across the program year.
- SkillSelect first allocates available places to
- Skilled – Independent visas (subclass 189)
- the remaining to Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family Sponsored.
According to Department of Home Affairs: “If all places are taken up by subclass 189 visas then there will be no invitations issued for subclass 491 visas in these occupations.”
