Australia gives dream chance to 100 candidates for migration

Skillselect invitation

Skill Select Australia opens up opportunities for eligible and competent overseas candidates to qualify to work in Australia or to do business in the country. Using Skill Select, candidates can give an Expression of Interest (EOI) to migrate to Australia. This is the first step in the migration to the country. The candidate may have to give a skills assessment test to qualify for an Australia work permit visa.

The skills assessment test assigns points to the candidate. Candidates with the required points will qualify for an invitation to apply for a visa that lets them live and work in Australia. Lately, such a round of invitation was conducted by Australia on April 11, 2020.

These invitation rounds are run once in a month, generally the 11th of each month. The invitations are sent to visa subclasses:

  • Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)
  • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491)

The number of invitations sent in each round depends on the number of applications that are processed by the Department.

In the April 11 round, 50 invitations each went to each of the 2 subclasses.

The Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) is meant for invited workers and citizens of New Zealand who have stipulated skills needed to live and work anywhere in Australia permanently.

Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) is a family-sponsored visa. It’s meant for skilled people nominated by a territory or state government to live and work in regional Australia.

It’s a fact that there is a high demand for the occupations that are filled by this invitation round. Hence, those occupation groups will be treated with pro-rata arrangements. This is done to ensure the availability of invitations throughout the program year.

The first priority given by Skill Select for allocation is for Skilled Independent visas (subclass 189). The remaining goes to Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491). In case of subclass 189 visas exhaust all places; no invitations will go to candidates for subclass 491 visas in these occupations.
