Australia held its latest SkillSelect Invitation round on May 9, 2019 for GSM (General Skilled Migration) visa categories. Usually, the invitation round occurs on monthly basis, i.e. on 11th day of the month, however, this time around the DHA decided to launch it on 9th day of the month only. The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) Australia invites the candidates under two key GSM visa categories, i.e. Subclass 189 and Subclass 489 visa in these monthly invitation rounds.

9th May SkillSelect Invitation round

This time around, the DHA has issued 100 invitations to the candidates under Skilled Independent Subclass 189 visa with a minimum point score of 80 points.

May SkillSelect Invitation round Results

Visa subclass Number Minimum Point Score
Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) 100 80
Skilled Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 489) 10 85

Also only 10 invites have been issued to the candidates under visa category, i.e. Skilled Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 489) with a minimum point score of 85 points.

For last two invitation rounds, the DHA is inviting quite low number of candidates for both visa categories, i.e. 100 and 10 respectively for Subclass 189 and Subclass 489 visas. This reduction may be due to the end of financial year, as we are heading towards July.

In the beginning of the July month every year, the Aussie government re-define its allocation of visa places against every in high demand occupation of the country. Hence, this may be the case with low invite towards the end of the financial year.

List of Pro-rata Occupations

The Pro-rata occupations are those occupations The Pro-rata occupations are the occupations, which have greater demand compared to the places available. Hence, the point requirement for such occupations is usually high compared to the normal occupations. Let's take a look at list of pro-rata occupations this time around.
