Australian government releases Australia Occupation Ceilings for every program year to allocate the number of visa invitations against Australia’s in-demand occupation. Once this ceiling or limit has met, no further visa invitations can be issued against the same occupation.
Although there is no limit on accepting the number of EOIs (Expression of Interest), it applies to the issuance of many invitations only.
The rightmost column in the list below indicates the number of issued visa places for a particular occupation on a particular date.
The status of available invitations for an occupation is subject to change depending on the current situation. Hence, to clarify the exact status or to get assistance to apply for a visa against any occupation, you may contact our Australia immigration expert on Toll-Free No. 78-18-000-777 or drop an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I was recommended by a close friend to use Visas Avenue. At first I was a little apprehensive to use their services as I felt that many times there was a massive communication gap. As time went by this gap got smaller and the case manager and myself could understand each other. My case manager was very thorough with the whole PR process for Canada. Read More...
