Australia has released the results of the first Skill Select round of 2020 held on 11th January. Australia issued 1300 invitations- 1000 under the Subclass 189 and the rest under the Subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional (Family-sponsored) Visa.
The minimum required score in the latest Skill Select round dropped marginally to 90 points. The latest Subclass 189 EOI to be invited was lodged in early October 2019.
High demand for some occupations caused invitations to be issued on a pro-rata basis. Invitations are first given under for the Subclass 189. If there are visa places left, the remaining are issued under the Subclass 491 Visa.
