First Round of Invitations for Skilled Visas
It is expected that applicants who have submitted their EOI (Expression of Interest) for a 189 Visa (Skilled Independent) or the 489 Visa (Skilled Regional Provisional) will receive an invitation these days as the next invitation round was anticipated to start on 11 July 2018.
Looking back at previous invitations rounds starting in a new migration year (after July 1st each year) have generally seen a higher volume of invitations.
While the minimum pass marked was increased to 65 points on July 1, many invitations in previous invitation rounds were issued to applicants with about 70 – 75 points even. Those with higher points will be invited to apply for the visa first. Applicants with the same score will receive their invitations based on the time they reached their score for the visa.
The latest invitation round results currently officially published on the Department of Home Affairs’ website are those from 20 June 2018.
