Australia Visa Invitation Rounds To Be Quarterly In 2021

The New Year brings new changes with the Department of Home Affairs announcing a change in the frequency of invitation rounds in 2021.

“The Department will run quarterly invitation rounds for the remainder of 2020-21 program year. The next invitation round will run in January 2021,”

It was October 2020 when the last Skillselect invitation rounds were published and though we’re not expecting significant numbers of invitations to be published in January, the quarterly review cycle makes a little more sense given the lower volume of invitations issued in recent rounds.

The Department of Home Affairs says the 2020-21 Migration Program provides flexibility for the responsible Minister to adjust skilled migration planning levels as circumstances require.

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.
