Australia Expression of Interest Selection 1 August 2012
The following EOIs were selected on 1 August 2012 - the first automated round on invitations to apply to migrate:
- 100 EOIs were selected that had a points total of 75 or above:
- 90 Skilled Independent (sub-class 189)
- 10 Skilled Regional (sub-class 489 - family sponsored)
- 107 applicants received nominations from State and Territory Governments during July 2012 and were also selected to apply.
Diac advises: "While this first round of invitations was small, we expect to be increasing the number of invitations issued in future invitation rounds, so that Australia can benefit from the high quality client submitting Expressions of Interest through SkillSelect"
(A total of 100 EOIs and 107 state skilled nominations were therefore selected)
