Immigration South Australia recently announced that due to high demand, the ‘High Point Category’ minimum points will rise from 80 to 85 points on 22 September 2015.
The High Point Category allows applicants to access additional occupations which are listed in the special conditions and Supplementary Skilled List if they meet the high points minimum in SkillSelect.
There are individual occupation quotas for high point nomination. To date, Marketing Specialist is the only occupation that has been closed off for high point nomination.
There is also an overall quota for the high point category. Once this is reached, the high point category will be closed off for the remainder of the program year.
