Know the latest Skill Select update for February 2019

In the latest Skill Select update for February 2019, the number of invitations issued dropped to 1,490. In the previous round, 2,490 invitations were issued.

For Subclass 189, the cut-off score for non pro-rata occupations remained at 70. Since the number of invitations issues have decreased, the most recently lodged EOI was for the month of November 2018. This has increased the wait time to more than 3 months.

For the Subclass 489 Family Sponsored Visa, 10 invitations are issued per month with a cut-off score of 80. The processing time is around 4 months from the time the EOI is lodged.

Here are the point scores for the pro-rata occupations in the February 2019 round:

Occupation ID Name Minimum points
2211 Accountants 85
2212 Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasurers 80
2334 Electronics Engineer 75
2335 Industrial, Mechanical, and Production Engineers 75
2339 Other Engineering Professionals 75
2611 ICT Business and System Analysts 75
2613 Software and Application Programmers 75
2631 Computer Network Professionals 75

The points for Accountant has increased to 85. Auditors remained the same at 80 points. The points for the rest of the pro-rata occupations have also increased to 75. This is most likely due to the decreased number of invitations issued in the February round. The minimum score could drop if the number of invitations increases in subsequent rounds, as per SBS News.
