Next Skillselect Invitation Monday 10th February

SkillselectThe next Skillselect invitation round is next Monday 10th February for anyone out there who might be interested.

An interesting announcement on the Australian Immigration website (link) though, it looks like for the subclass 489 – Skilled Regional (Provisional) (Sponsored) visas, numbers will be limited.


Please note invitation rounds will be held on the second and fourth Monday of each month, rather than the first and third for rest of the programme year.

Due to a large number of applications there will be a limit of 35 invitations for subclass 489 – Skilled Regional (Provisional) (Sponsored) visas until further notice. This change will be implemented from the 16 December 2013 invitation round.

Please note that this will not have any impact on state or territory government nominations for subclass 489 – Skilled Regional (Provisional) (State or territory nominated) visas and nominations for these visas can continue.

More information and tips here about how to raise an expression of interest on Skillselect for those of you who may be interested.
