Australia's latest SkillSelect Invitation round of this month held on 11th April 2019 to issue invitations under visa categories, i.e. Skilled Independent Subclass 189 and Skilled Regional (Provisional) Subclass 489 visas. However, the drastically reduced number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Australian GSM (General Skilled Migration) visas, have surprised the applicants a lot. Find out more details about the current SkillSelect Invitation round.
SkillSelect Invitation round on 11th April 2019
Department of Home Affairs, Australia launches the SkillSelect Invitation round on 11th of every month and as of now, however, the launch date is not fixed and can changes keeping in mind the 11th day of the month.
April SkillSelect Invitation round Results
|Visa subclass||Number||Minimum Point Score|
|Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)||100||80|
|Skilled Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 489)||10||80|
In the April 2019 invitation round, Australia invited just 100 candidates under Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) with minimum point score requirement as 80 points. Moreover, the 10 Invitations were issued to Skilled Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 489) with same minimum point score, i.e. 80 points.
List of Pro-rata Occupations
The Pro-rata occupations are those occupations for which demand for places is higher compared to the actual available places. Hence, the point score are usually higher for these occupations compared to the other normal occupations. While Subclass 189 visa invitations reduced to bottom in the current invitation round, no impact is noticed on the Subclass 489 visa invites this time around.
Why invites for Subclass 189 visa reduced?
Well, a key reason for the fall in Subclass 189 invitations is the upcoming federal elections (18th May 2019) as well as the imminent end of financially year in couple of months. These two factors can be a reason for drastic drop in invitations to plan and arrange the numbers of visas to be allocated this year.Find out the pro-rata occupation scores for 11th April Invitation round:

Visas Avenue handled my application for Australian PR successfully. They are good in knowledge, well versed with the current procedure. Special Thanks to Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha, they both were polite, professional and always gave answer to all my queries which helped me in managing the stress during the application process.
Enrolled with Visas Avenue in 2017 for Canada PR. Have had a good experience. Except for a few follow ups that were needed at times, I am satisfied with my over all result. 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 as their partner.
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. Definitely recommended..!!

If you are looking for a Visa company who is fast, organized and very detailed oriented then you should get in touch with Visas Avenue Pvt. Ltd. Shivangi Arora was my case manager and she has a very good knowledge of the process. She was very prompt and diligent, she made sure that all the documents are provided on time so that the Immigration doesn t ask for anything at a later stage. I am really happy with their work as I have got my Australian PR because of them which is like a dream come true with 50 bands in each module in PTE test. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and relatives who are looking forward for their visa processing. Keep doing the good job and making lives!!
I have been the client of Visas Avenue from past 1.5 years now and recently received the approval for Permanent Residency (PR) Canada. I must say that they are the finest bunch of dedicated professionals and probably the best in their domain. I visited them after receiving positive feedback from few of my friends & known. And I must say that I found their services exactly the same as I heard from my references.I was especially impressed by the way; my case manager (Ms Ruchika Sharma) went an extra mile whenever I asked her for help at every step, may it be related to the documents required, answering queries, LOI, online procedures, payments, etc.My Case officer & other support executives (Ms. Surbhi) were extremely helpful & professional throughout the visa process. At one point of time post many IELTS attempts I was unable to score CLB 9 & thereafter planned to drop the idea of immigrating to Canada but my case manager: Ms Ruchika Sharma was quite positive to convince me & gave vital advise to apply for Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). In fact, she did it on my behalf and fortunately, I was nominated from the Ontario Province of Canada. It made my road to Canada lot easier as I subsequently, got Invite to apply for Canada PR, which wouldn’t have been possible without the sincere efforts of this hardworking professional team @ Visas Avenue. Thanks for making my wish come true.Best of Luck !!
Visas Avenue had to be the pathway I had to chose to sail through my PR process for Canada. I visited many agencies and with the way my initial queries were satisfactorily handled, I decided to move forward with their help. It has been a long journey and they have been thoroughly helpful and supportive in each and every phase of this process. Special Thanks to Gaurav Sharma - I disturbed him a lot with tons of millions of queries and doubts, but he remained calm, cooperative and fully knowledgeable to help me understand every nitty-gritty of the process. I will not hesitate in recommending Visas Avenue to any of my friends or acquaintances who wishes to apply for Canada PR application. Many Thanks once again Gaurav for your incredible support.
Very Professional Consultancy, which has actual meaningful escalation Matrix system for customers too. Without them I won t have been able to get PR simply because they put lots of effort for my PNP nomination. Special mentions to Mrigya Shah & Arpita Saha for their knowledgeable support, professional communication, support and efforts. Thanks a lot.
