Get started with Australian Immigration Process

Well, the above mentioned is immigration intake but there are three loopholes under skilled migration category intake. Hereby, Aptech Visa is only projecting the estimates. The final outcome from DOHA will be considered final.

  • Subclass 494 Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) Visa

This new visa category will take over the previous RSMS 187 visa from 16 November onwards. It looks like DHA will count provisional visa as a permanent migrant visa as many people will struggle to keep the same job for a full 3 years to actually get their permanent residence. There will be barely number of applicants in late November, December and January (2020) for this 494 visa and their target of 9000 visa grants. So, for this year the projected number from our side is 2000.

  • Subclass 491 Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa

For 2019-20 the 491 visa target was set at 14,000. This will split into two pathways- State and family sponsored. The Assumptions are made for dividing 491 visa targets equally. Let’s assume 7000 places for state sponsored and 7000 for family sponsored.

  • New Global Talent Visa

The New Global Talent Visa has resulted in less than 30 visa grants in its first year. The program is quite complicated and more difficult than other similar company-sponsored visas. It is anticipated that out of 5000 visa places only 500 will be allocated.
