Invitation process and cut offs

The highest ranked clients by points score are invited to apply for the relevant visa. For clients who have equal points scores, the time at which they reached their points score for that subclass (referred to as the visa date of effect) determines their order of invitation. Expressions of Interest with earlier dates of effect are invited before later dates.

Note: the following occupation groups have reached their ceilings and no more invitations will be issued during the 2015-16 programme year:

  • 2211 – Accountants
  • 2212 – Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasures
  • 2334 – Electrical Engineers
  • 2335 – Industrial, Mechanical and Production Engineers
  • 2339 – Other Engineering Professionals
  • 2611 – ICT Business and Systems Analysts
  • 2613 – Software and Applications Programmers
  • 2631 – Computer Network and Systems Engineers

An occupation ceiling will be applied to invitations to apply to migrate under the points based skilled visas of the general skilled migration programme. There will be a limit on how many invitations are issued in these subclasses for a particular occupation to ensure that the migration programme is not dominated by a small number of occupations.

Occupational ceilings do not apply to, State or Territory Nominated, Employer Sponsored or Business Innovation and Investment visa subclasses.

Due to high levels of demand, the below three occupation groups will be subject to pro rata arrangements to ensure availability of invitations across the programme year:

  • ICT Business and System Analysts
  • Software and Applications Programmers
  • Accountants.
