Australia Skill Select update for September 2019

Australia Skilled Visa

Australia has announced the results of the Skill Select round for September  2019 and the results are nothing but surprising. Only 100 Subclass 189 invitations were sent out with minimum required score 85 of points. The cut-off score for “Accountants” was a staggering 95 points. 

A final lot of Subclass 489 invitations were also issued. 100 invitations were issued for the Subclass 489 Visa with a minimum score of 85 points. 

Invitations for the Subclass 489 Visa will no more be issued. The Subclass 491 Visa will replace the Subclass 489 Visa from November this year. 

Pro-rata occupations are those whose demand exceeds the available number of visa places. 

When allocating visa places, the priority is given to the Subclass 189 visa. If there are still visa places left, then these go to the Subclass 489 visa. In the case where there are no visa places left, then no invitations are issued under the Subclass 489 visa, as per SBS News.
