SkillSelect Invitations - Round 1 August 2012 Results

On 1 August 2012 the first automated round of invitations for the skilled independent and skilled family sponsored visas was conducted under SkillSelect system.

As SkillSelect is a new system, the first run of invitations was reduced in size. While this first round of invitations was small, we can expect to be increasing the number of invitations issued in future invitation rounds.

Automated rounds of invitations for the following visas:
  • Skilled Independent (subclass 189) visa; and

  • Skilled – Nominated or Sponsored (Provisional) (subclass 489) visa (Family Sponsored)

1 August results

The number of invitations was 100 places as below;

Invitation process and cut offs

In each round of invitations, the highest point scorers for each subclass are invited to apply for the relevant visa. For applicants who have the same level of points, the time at which they reached their current points score in that subclass (referred to as the visa status date) determines the order of invitation. EOIs with earlier visa status dates are invited before later status dates.
