New ACT Visa Program
ACT has opened its visa program again which was closed earlier this year on 29th June for revaluation. After reviewing and consulting with different entities, the government has announced the visa program with a new system few weeks back.
Australian Capital Territory government has replaced the earlier first come, first served invitation method and designed a completely unique point based invitation system. This system is complete dissimilar to other point system applicable in various other national and state point systems. The interested candidates require obtaining at least 20 points based on the ACT parameters, apart from fulfilling the national point requirements.
Presence in the territory
New system of ACT program would seek strong presence in the region from the candidates, before they actually apply for the visa. The points are likely to be given for different aspects or factors, i.e. study in Canberra or duration of stay, English language skills, language proficiency level of the partner, etc. can earn some valuable points. The candidates will get the invitation based on their scored points.
Points for the occupation
If the occupation of the applicant lies in the list of open occupations, he/she will get 10 points. However, no points will be allocated for the occupations closed already. ACT government has updated its occupation list on November 29, 2018. Some occupations have been removed, while some of them has been added in the list.
