Aptech Global is again back with its Australia SkillSelect June 2019 invitation round prediction for Australia Skilled Independent Visa Subclass 189. This visa is a point based permanent residency visa that allows skilled and qualified workers to come and settle anywhere in the country on permanent basis.
Visa 189 processing time and number of invitations depends upon when the Expression of Interest (EOI) was lodged and the number of available places in the visa category.
The Aptech Global estimates are not anywhere related with Department of Home Affairs. We our only analyzing the situation keeping in minds the current scenario of visa 189 invitations. If there is any change in the immigration policies, Aptech will also mold them accordingly.
We are assuming as it is the last immigration month of the year, the Department of Home Affairs will invite 100 invites once again for the EOI Australia SkillSelect 189 visa and 10 invites for the visa 489 visa.
Also, the visas 189 processing time is speculated to remain unchanged for the year 2019/20.
Our estimate is also based on DHA update that states, “As we have held a steady high rate of Skilled Independent (subclass 189) invitations in the first three quarters of the 2018-19 Migration Program years we now have a solid pipeline to take us through to the end of this program and enter into the 2019-20 program year. Furthermore, the 2019-20 Migration Programs planned ceilings have been announced with the skilled independent category reduced to 18,652 places that includes the subclass 189 New Zealand Stream and the point tested stream. We will now reduce our skilled independent invitation rounds for the remaining last quarter of 2018-19 program to 100 invitations per month for visa 189 and continue with 10 invitations per month for the visa 489 (family visa). This will keep us with a good pipeline of applications and the ability to keep inviting each month in 2019-20, and support applicants by not increasing processing times.”
