Expressions of interest for subclass 189 and subclass 489 visas are lodged through SkillSelect. Invitations have been issued on the basis of those EOIs on a fortnightly basis. However, invitations will now be issued on a monthly basis instead. The number of invitations will be increased in line with the decreased frequency of invitation rounds as the overall allocation of places for the 2018-19 financial year is the same as it was for the 2017-18 financial year.
For further advice in relation to these changes and how they may impact on your application and visa options please contact us.
