SkillSelect invitation rounds for the financial year 2019-2020

Table of Contents

The information has been copied from the Home Affairs website on 26 July 2020 for future reference.

Overview

Invitation rounds for Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family Sponsored visas, anticipated to be run each month. Dates for the rounds are subject to change.

Invitation numbers in each round may vary depending on the number of applications being processed by the Department.

Note: State or territory government nominations for Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) will not be impacted by the departmental invitation rounds.

The Government is closely monitoring migration and visa settings to ensure they are consistent with public health measures, are flexible and do not displace job opportunities for Australians, so that Australia can effectively respond to the immediate and subsequent impacts of COVID-19. As such, targeted invitation rounds occurred in May and June 2020.
