SkillSelect Invitations 9 November 2016


 

SkillSelect Invitations

The table below shows the number of invitations issued in the SkillSelect invitation round on 9 November 2016.

#RESPALL Migration Australia secured eight (8) Visa Grants for the Month of November which likewise reflected a significant reduction of invitations by the department of immigration overall and was the lowest month for invitations for this financial year. Taking this into account the 8 visa grants issued for November to #RESPALL was still a great result for their clients in the Philippines bound for Austrlia.

Invitation process and cut offs

The highest ranked clients by points score are invited to apply for the relevant visa. For clients who have equal points scores, the time at which they reached their points score for that subclass (referred to as the visa date of effect) determines their order of invitation. Expressions of Interest with earlier dates of effect are invited before later dates.

Due to high levels of demand, and in keeping with previous years, the below occupation groups will be subject to pro rata arrangements to ensure availability of invitations across the programme year. SkillSelect first allocates available places to Skilled – Independent visas (subclass 189) and then remaining to Skilled – Regional (Provisional) visas (subclass 489). If all places are taken up by subclass 189 visas then there will be no invitations issued for subclass 489 visas in these occupations.

  • Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasurers
  • ICT Business and System Analysts
  • Software and Applications Programmers
