October 29th, 2016
Here is our analysis from the Skill Select round of 12th October in regards when you may receive an invite in the Pro rata occupations for a 189 or 190 (NSW sponsored) visa.
Some additional notes from this round :
- The EOI last invite date for Auditors of 20/04/16 looks a typo. We expect this should be a September 2016 date and have asked DIBP to confirm.
- Industrial, Mechanical and Production Engineers is likely to close to new invites in Nov/Dec 2016 unless DIBP pro rata that occupation.
- Electronics Engineers is likely to close around March 2017 to new invites unless DIBP pro rata that occupation
- DIBP are not able to fill their 189 (or 489 family sponsored) monthly quota from EOIs at 60 points at the moment. If they want to meet their annual 189 targets (and there is not a large onhand caseload for them to use at the moment) there is going to be pressure on them to look at relaxing the Pro Rata ceilings.
