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.
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.
|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.
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.
|Occupation ID||Description||Minimum points score||Latest date of effect|
|2211||Accountants||90||01/05/2019 6:46 am|

Visas Avenue proven to be good consultant when it s regarding processing my Canadian pr. To me they were professional and I’m completely satisfied with the accountability they have shown in my case and follow ups they did for me. Rajeshwari.V is my Case Manager for Canada and she did an excellent job in explaining me the whole process/ documents needed and how/where to get them. Finally i got my pr exactly on/before the expected processing time. I knew the whole process and yet I took help of visas avenue as I wanted professionals to fail-proof my application and make sure it cause no extra unnecessary delays and that’s exactly what I got for them.

I must say that both of them have been excellent and empathetic. They are professional, helpful and dedicated. Special thanks to Shivangi who has been exceptional at her work. The overall experience has been very good. I would recommend Visas Avenue to people who want to immigrate to the destination of their choice. Working with Visas Avenue has been a delight.

"First of all I would like to thank Tabby K who initially guided me in detail through the Australian PR process, even though I had already conveyed that I will not be signing up for any Professional Services and will be filing it on my own. Still she detailed out every step and answered all my queries then and there itself. Secondly and most importantly a big thanks to our case officer Kirti Chauhan whose impeccable professionalism and patience in hearing and responding to our thousand queries helped us achieving the Visa. We used to be extra cautious and pessimistic with every step, but she always kept us motivated and was a great support during the whole process. I will definitely recommend Visas Avenue to all Visa aspirants."

Mrigya was my lead consultant, and she has helped me in all possible ways whenever I was in doubt. Have also received great support from Arpita from the team. I recommend everyone looking to settle abroad, can safely choose VISAS AVENUE.
I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Specially want to mention about Ms Jyoti Singh, my case manager for all the help and support throughout my Canadian PR journey. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. I am recommending Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so as they provide effective services with reasonable fee. Once again, Thank You Jyoti and Visas Avenue for all your support.
