Number of invitations for the Skilled Independent 189 visa and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family-Sponsored on this round reduced from 1,490 to only 100.

Number of invitations for the Subclass 189 visa:

  • 100 points: 15
  • 105 points: 12

Number of invitations for the Subclass 491 visa:

Pro-rata occupations:

Due to high levels of demand, certain occupations are issued invitations on a pro-rata basis.

SkillSelect first allocates available places to Skilled Independent visas (subclass 189) and then the remaining to Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) Family-Sponsored. If all places are taken up by subclass 189 visas then there will be no invitations issued for subclass 491 visas in these occupations.
