SkillSelect Update

We have summarised some important insights from the most recent Department of Immigration report on the 13 March invitation round. For instance:

  • More places were made available for family Sponsored 489 applicants and people with 60 points are being invited in this category
  • The ICT Business and Systems Analysts occupational group is now full - no further invitations will be issued for 189 and family sponsored 489 applicants until 1 July 2015
  • Occupational Ceilings for most occupations are unlikely to be reached this program year, apart from the Accountants and Software and Applications Programmers occupational groups
  • Applicants are still being invited with 60 points and expected waiting times for an invitation are not excessive for most applicants
