Invitation Round on 6 October


Invitation rounds for Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family Sponsored visas will be run cyclically during the 2022-23 program year.

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

State or territory government nominations for skilled visas will not be impacted by the departmental invitation rounds.

Occupation Ceiling for Invitation Rounds

An 'occupation ceiling' may be applied to invitations issued under independent, and skilled regional (provisional) visas.

This means there will be a reasonable upper limit on how many Expressions of Interest can be invited for skilled migration from an occupation group. This ensures that the skilled migration program remains balanced and continues to invite intending migrants across a variety of skilled occupations.

Occupation ceiling values are based on a percentage of stock employment figures for each occupation. The Australian Bureau of Statistics provides employment figures, and represents the number of people employed in Australia in each occupation.

Occupation ceilings do not apply to State or Territory Nominated or Business Innovation and Investment visa subclasses.

Invitation process and cut offs

The highest ranked individuals by points score are invited to apply for the relevant visa. Those who have equal points scores, the time at which they reached their points score for that subclass (referred to as the date of effect) determines their order of invitation. Expressions of Interest with earlier dates of effect are invited before later dates.
