Australia General Skilled Migration SkillSelect Invitation Round Results – 23 May 2018

Australia General Skilled Migration SkillSelect Invitation Round Results – 23 May 2018

Key terms: SkillSelect – Invitation to Apply – Skilled Independent subclass 189 - Skilled Regional Provisional subclass 489 – Expression of Interest – Points Test

Results for the latest SkillSelect invitation round on 23 May 2018 have been published. Here is a summary of the results:

  • 300 Skilled Independent visa invitations were issued
    • applications with 75 points or more were invited
    • applications submitted 18 May 2018 have been invited
  • 5 Skilled Regional Sponsored visa invitations were issued
    • applications with 80 points or more were invited
    • applications submitted 26 April 2018 were invited 
 

Occupations with pro rata arrangements

Pro rata arrangements and higher points requirements remain for occupation groups which are in high demand. The majority of applications for popular occupations are still stuck with a higher points requirement to receive an invitation. The following occupations are listed for pro rata arrangements:

  • Accountants
  • Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasurers
  • Electronics Engineers
  • Industrial, Mechanical and Production Engineers
  • Other Engineering Professionals
  • ICT Business and System Analysts
  • Software and Applications Programmers
  • Computer Network Professionals

 

Points required to receive an invitation

Points required for Accountants – 80 points

Points required for Auditors – 80 points

Points required for Electronic Engineers – 75 points

Points required for Industrial, Mechanical and Production Engineers – 75 points

Points required for Other Engineering Professional – 75 points

Points required for ICT Business and System Analysts – 75 points

Points required for Software and Applications Programmers – 75 points

Points required for Computer Network Professionals – 75 points

This means that if you are an accountant or auditor you will need to have at least 80 points or more to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

If you are looking to obtain more points for your Expression of Interest (EOI) you should read our article on how you can increase the points for your EOI application.

The next invitation round is scheduled for 6 June 2018 and we will summarise the results once they are published.

Comment from Principal Migration Agent and Lawyer Chris Johnston

A new migration year starts on 1 July 2018.  This means the Federal Government will be releasing new allocations of positions available for General Skilled Migration. Also, there will be new State Nomination allocations from this date. Applicants looking to apply for Subclass 189, 190 and 489 visas should start preparing by getting their skills assessed and English results ready.

It can be a nervous wait:

  • What level of points will be required for the 189?
  • Will your occupation be on the State Sponsored list for 190 and 489?

All will be revealed from 1 July 2018.
