Australian government has made key changes in the occurrence of the periodic Skilled Select Invitation Rounds. The change will take effect from August 2018 for the two key visa categories, i.e. Skilled - Independent (subclass 189) and Skilled - Regional Provisional (subclass 489). Let's find more details about the vital change announced by Department of Home Affairs, Australia.
SkillSelect Invitation Round will now me once every month
Presently, the SkillSelect Invitation rounds take place twice in a month. However, from August, 2018, the SkillSelect Invitation rounds Skilled - Independent (subclass 189) and Skilled - Regional Provisional (subclass 489) will be held once every month.
As per Department of Home Affairs, the invitation round will take place on 11th day of every month. This will be effective from August 11, 2018. However, it will not affect the overall number of Invites issued every month.
Delay in receiving Invite
The key impact of the new change will be on the time taken for receiving invite for a Subclass 189 visa applicant. Earlier the applicant with high enough immigration point score, used to get the invite within 2 weeks. However, as per the new monthly occurrence of Invitation Round, an applicant even with the good point score, will have to wait for at least a month to get the ITA (Invitation to Apply).
