Australia conducted its latest Skill Select invitation round on 11th December. Invitations were issued under the Subclass 189 (Skilled Independent) and Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional)) Visa.
The 11th December draw saw 250 invitations issued under the Subclass 189 Visa and 200 invitations issued under the Subclass 491 Visa. The minimum cut-off score was 95 points in both the subclasses.
In the Skill Select invitation rounds, highest-ranked candidates are issued invitations. Candidates scoring equal points are issued invitations in the order of the date and time that they lodged an EOI. The candidate who lodged his EOI earlier gets invited first than the candidate who lodged the EOI at a later date.
Skill Select first allocates all the available visa spots to the Subclass 189 Visa. The remaining visa spots are then allocated to the Subclass 491 Visa. If all the visa spots are taken up by the Subclass 189 Visa, then there are no invitations issued under the Subclass 491 Visa.
The minimum required score for the pro-rata occupations in the 11th December draw were:
