Matrix nominating Critical Skill Occupations:

The ACT has a specific number of nominations for each month. The applications are submitted by candidates who migrate to Australia looking for employment. They need to score high in the Matrix. Each occupation is invited to apply for the nomination for the ACT.

The cut-off score for eligibility depends on the vacant allocation after the selection, the date and time at which the Matrix was submitted, the cap of the occupation, and the demand. If the need for the occupation is more, the individual who scores high in the rank of the Matrix is invited.
