Austalian SkillSelect Invitation Rounds – September 2020

September Skillselect Numbers are in with a total of 500 invitations being issued across the 189 Visa and 491 Visa classes.

The Split in September was 350 invitations issued to 189 Visa applicants with a balance of 150 Invitations going to 491 Visa Applicants.

Minimum Points required to revive an invitation to apply for an Australian Visa September 2020

The table below details the number of points required to receive an invitation to apply for an Australian Visa last month. Compared to previous months, the points required was quite low (65 points and 75 points respectively).

Visa subclass Minimum points score Latest date of effect month
Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) 65 07/2020
Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family Sponsored) 75 08/2020
Australia Points Test Changes - November 2019

Given the low points score, we’d assume these were to candidates on the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) which targets construction and healthcare workers.

So to summarise, we are three months into the 2020 – 2021 Migration year and only 1300 Invitations have been issued so far.
